"The Split". Photo by Blitzo.


The Crux move is moving from under the roof up into the chimney. Make a few hand jams in the crack to gain footing on the face as you move up and left into the chimney. From there it is a good face climb but if needed at the bottom you can do some chimney moves. Keep an eye out for some great side pulls on the face of the front wall.


The start is in the crack under the roof to the right. There hooks on top of the route but before you Rap off you might want to consider setting a Top rope on the same anchor for the Face route Chardoney Champagne 5.9 just to the right.


Seven Bolts with two open cold shuts on top.

The opening moves are very different from most climbing in the hills and thus make this a fun route. It's kinda chossy.

didnt seem chossy to me. Great route with perfect jams at the bottom!! Really good! Around first bolt it's the crux, if you use the crack.
