Description 

This route follows a very tubelike water chute which eventually turns into a flared chimney. Because of the varying steepness and width of the chute a combination of stemming and chimneying skills are beneficial.

Location 

Route is located just to the right of the 4th class gully between the North Yak and Yak Wall. Two ropes are required to rappel. It is also possible to walk South along the top of the wall to the anchors for the route Bullrun and rappel into the gulley with a single rope. Another option is to walk off to the North or South and skirt back along to the base of the climb.

Protection 

4 bolts which can be supplemented by medium size cams. 1.5"-2.5" There is a new two bolt anchor with rap rings in addition to the original belay bolt.
