Crux is down low traversing out and up into a finger crack. About 20' from the start.


Follow the coast of South America all the way up. Can drouble rap (2 ropes) from Amazon Woman anchors (barely). Tie a knot in the loose end and make sure the not by the chains is a good 5-10' from the chains, otherwise you'll never be able to pull the ropes due to the knot friction going over the top of the continent.


Couple large pieces are nice (#3 camalot or larger). Few small to protect the crux move out the lieback and into the finger crack.

Follow the obvious finger crack into the chimney. Easier than South Pacific by a mile.
