Matt T. catching the no hands rest in the chimney ...

Description 

Climb up the angular road cut granite to reach the chimney. Wriggle up this funky feature until it peters out and forces you out onto the shallow dihedral. Weird jams, slopers, hidden holds and little crimps will guide you to an off-balance stance to clip the anchor. Sadly, this climb is no where near as good as the single malt of the same name, particularly the Doublewood.

Location 

Left of LaPhroaig and right of Auchentoshen. Look for the right facing chimney about 20' up.

Protection 

9 bolts, sport anchor
