5 pitches of steep hand-ow-bombay chimney-traverse. Pitch #1: Up crack to chimney between two walls. Either chimney up or go right up initially dirty OW to better rock. Pitch #2: Beautiful steep hand crack in corner. Pitch #3: Vertical to overhanging OW and hands to good rest, then brutal (sandbag) 5.10+ bombay chimney. Pitch#4: Exciting bolted traverse. Pitch #5: Up and right from the belay up a steep, thin finger crack and over a couple bulges. Thin pro. Rap from anchors on climbers right. Fun free hanging 180 ft. rappel. Three raps total.
