Description:

Although McLane lists this as a 2-3 pitch route it is easily done as a single long pitch. Climb pasta flake at the bottom to an offwidth that widens to squeeze chimney. Pass a small roof and enter a massive cleft (possible belay). Cracks on the right wall lead upward to a stemming section past a chockstone flake. Finish right under another chockstone and emerge through a hole at the top.

4 out of 5 stars cool cave

I huffed my way up the first part of the chimney into the cave and some awesome stemming up from there. Really neat climb but don't wear your fancy pants unless you want to ruin them.
