Chapel Pond, the Washbowl Cliffs and fall foliage ...

Description 

P1 5.4 -- Start at right end of ledge before it drops into Chapel Pond (main wall), at a series of left leaning cracks. Follow these cracks for a bit until you can get onto the arete, then climb the arete. Near the top step left and continue up to fixed anchor at tree.

Location 

Start at the right end of the bottom ledge (left face).

Protection 

I used (2) tricams on the route. There are pockets that didn't seem to accept any type of gear due to being flared. Some cracks and a couple nut placements. Overall I felt the gear was mediocre and there was a bit of runout between pieces.
