Rock Climbing Photos : Trad : Wooden Hammer

Wooden Hammer

Wooden Hammer

A dirty route that rarely gets climbed. Some real precarious varnish you must rely on to pull yourself out of two separate chimneys that are fractured. Horned owls use the upper chimney as their dining room, tons of skeletal remains of rodents, etc. The first pitch starts out with two bolts and then the rest of the route is trad. There are two distinct chimneys, make your way through the first one by protecting really deep with large gear and then having to come out onto suspect holds to reach the next chimney. The 2nd chimney is a squeeze play up to suspect holds again to pull yourself up and over onto easier ground. The third pitch can be combined with this second pitch. Once you top out, you can traverse west to a set of chains, about 15 meters. There will be another set of chains half way down on top of an arch. May, 2007, Prophesy Wall
