BETA PHOTO: this is the start of the climb


P1 110' Climb the right chimney. There are two blocks in the climb that you have to get outside the chimney to work around, there are a lot of holds but most are loose. After that continue up into a run out bigger than squeeze chimney/offwidth and then top out on a ledge. We rapped off of a slung boulder here (horrible pull) 5.9 PG-13+.
P2 80'? looks like you could continue up this with some easy face climbing/low angle crack to a tree, it looked pretty run out.

2 60m ropes for the rappel off P1


~1.2 miles from pavement down capitol gorge. Climb is on the right at the start of a 180' left turn. There is lots of room to pull off the road in the turn.


Medium cams, single rack #.5-#4 camalots. A medium hex would be useful instead of the #4.
