Mike on the first pitch. If you belay from here, i...


This is a fun, little jaunt up an intimidating chimney with a lot of chockstones above your head.

P1, 2, and 3 can be broken up as you feel comfortable. I think you can do this climb as 2 huge pitches.

This is the obvious chimney on the north tooth, tucked behind a tree.

Climb the chimney using cracks on the wall and slinging chocks for protection. Continue to the summit.

Descent: walk off to the north and wrap around the base of the west face.


Double rack of cams, triple length runners.

There is protection available for the entire climb.

I vote to name this the Treasure Chimney, last time we climbed it we found some great booty, lockers, steripen, leathermen, firstaid kit.... Lots of bird crap in the middle though.
