Climb maybe longer and was an awful lead because of loose rocks. Many dislodged rocks fell off the vertical drop right away from belay. Took hours to dislodge rocks to make it safe for setting up a top rope. Ted and I abandoned this ledge after our attempt failed at decent progress. Tom and Jay returned and tried another way that gained more height. The Investment could be worth something for access to upper ledge or not. We didn't stay to find out.


Slightly right of center of the highest cliff. Only ramp there. Rappel and gear might be needed to make rappel anchor. Downhill from start is the bigger than life rock leaning towards the ledge that is a very wide walk into chimney.


Mostly stoppers and slings for rappel.
