Oliver Perry-Smith, 1913
2 Ringbolts. Take full rack of slings, but don't expect continuous protectability.
Prominent crack splitting the right part of the South Face. First done by American Oliver Perry-Smith in the early 1900s. Ranges from hand to off-width. Usually done in three pitches. Belay at first ringbolt (left of crack), continue up crack to overhang and climb right-leaning ramp past 2nd ringbolt. Belay on ledge behind heart-shaped pillar. Traverse left back into the crack and follow it to top. There is a belay anchor on a platform to the left when you exit the chimney.

Probably 10 a. an overhanging crack system first couple of moves are hardest and require a well placed knot or two. higher, there is a section of overhanging fists (mid 10) lined with broken dinner plate holds5.8. at the base is a plaque "Tobias 1963 to 2003". I wondered which of the broken dinner plates was Tobias this section is not protectable and a fall would probably be deadly. I climbed the fists crack.
we did about 40 routes over 3 weeks. this was the tamest crack.
