  • Description 

    This is a fun route, but it feels difficult for its 10a rating. You could place your #6 Camalot as your first piece, but it is better to save it for above. A #5 will work as well. The starting crack gets smaller, and you gain a small ledge below a short offwidth crack. The offwidth will take your #6, and there is a small crack deep within. Above there is a small ledge where a steep hand crack begins. The crack gets thinner up high before you reach a good ledge. You can lay back at the cracks end. You can belay at a thin crack on the ledge if you want to see and communicate with your follower. You can proceed left, under a rock and through a small tunnel like area, and belay beneath the Turf Spreader crux roof.

    Location 

    This route is well to the right of Great Chimney and starts by a mellow, angled ramp. You begin up a crack which is wide at the start. There is a fixed anchor near the end to descend or you can continue up Turf Spreader.

    Protection 

    Standard rack to a #6 Camalot. There are anchors above Great Chimney near where the route ends.
