2 out of 5 stars weird anchor situation

This was a lot of work and sort of sketchy setting up the anchors. The chimney scramble wasn't hard but it made my friends nervous as they watched. When I got up top there weren't really a lot of easy options for the anchor. There's a big tree set far back, a large but potentially loose rock, and a small pine tree. I constructed a tedious contraption linking these things b/c using any one would have created potential swing for the climber if the anchor were to slip. Eventually to be safe I just belayed from above. In the end I took a chance on a swing and climbed it with a TR from below (at least I knew what to be careful of) just to get a sense of whether the climb was worth the hassle. Anyway it was fairly easy and it's neighbor on the arete and had a couple of interesting moves but was VERY short. Really I can't recommend it unless you are bored with everything else of this grade in the area - the parking lot area is just around the corner!

Top Rope Top Rope ascent by: Rmsyll on 2007-10-31 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars just once

Yes, the chimney can be jammed and climbed to a block for top-rope. The small Pine is ok for backup. You can get up the face with finger holes, but getting to the middle ledge takes either a mantle move or an under-cling and felt 5.7ish for that. Short, even starting on the Trail which hugs this face. The top is a flat platform with a good view of the aretes too.
