  • Description 

    climb up and over the overhang/roof in the chimney, and find your self on a large ledge (you can also bypass the overhang by working your way around to the far left then moving back above it). follow the notch and crack to the right of "rhythm roof". try not to go to far right, as it's an easy way to avoid the crux. on a nice weekend be prepared to stand in line to climb this gem.


    A Std rack will work to lead this route. Gear or long slings to wrap the trees will work for your anchor.

    Route eats up passive pro. Overhang off the start provides a robust start. Great line.

    Great climb, nice and easy for beginner trad. Tremendous variety for gear placement. May want to place a piece at the little roof/top-out at the very beginning if you're not feeling confident. Lots of sharp rock below.

    Pulling that initial overhang sure felt a lot harder than 5.6 to me. Very fun climb though, nice and direct.

    Great climb. As suggested, I placed a piece above the initial overhang before climbing it. It was an awkward move, but worth doing. Gear placement was great. A lot of constrictions for nuts.
