An awkward move past the fist bold leads to a jug haul through the tunnel and to the chains.


Highest route on the left wall at the top of the large chimney in Eastern Block.

Any info on the 11-ish roof line down and across the gully from ToL?

Hi Vance, it is listed under Headlight Point, new route by Jens K. I liked it, maybe 11a or 10d. There is also another route there, maybe 10a?

You will definitely want to rappel this one for your rope's sake. Awesome birthing experience when you come out of the tunnel. Great views from the top. You can turn around and sit at the anchors to soak it up.

Can be a muddy belay, and harsh on the rope as it drags past the chock stone.

Great route. Muddy belay if there have been recent rains.

Awesome views at the top. Some cool exposure. Long route - watch for rope drag (it got real bad) and use some longer slings.
