Approach to this route is filled with bushes now. It was pain in the butt to get to bottom of the base. We did the alternate 5.8 start instead of starting off on Chimney. First pitch is kind of lame, but it gets better as you move up. Some sections are hard to protect without large gear, but I managed without it. You will need standard rack + lots of slings.
Melissa and I topped out during just in time when rain came out from no where.
Lost the trail on the approach and had to bushwack around the rock... but the route was decent. We did it in 5 pitches and avoided the chimney start by climbing a crack to the right. Some fun laybacking and very cool chickenheads! We walked off in the pouring raining.
We climbed this route with a slight variation. We skipped the first pitch and that damn chimney, and climbed the crack about twenty feet to the right, not sure of the name of the route though. Did the first two pitches of this route to a large ledge, then moved down and into the gully on the third pitch of the Quacker. I would highly recommend this variation.
