Description:

Popular 2-pitch offwidth/chimney dihedral on the south side of formation, located to the left of The Waterchute. Original 5.6 start goes up the face at about 15' to the left of the crack, then traversing right across a slopey ledge to get to the dihedral. The 5.8 direct start goes up an awkward trough that has a short finger crack inside. The second pitch begins at about 15' to the left of the bolted rap anchor of the first pitch, across the spacious ledge. One bolt protects the second pitch slab topout.

Descent Options:

2 raps.

5 out of 5 stars First multi pitch at JT

What a great way to start out a JT trip. Great route with amazing views. Might be a little easier than 5.6

4 out of 5 stars 3rd time on this. Still a fun climb for the grade

Took a group up for their 1st multipitch climb. Huge belay ledge allows for a comfortable rest and good pro throughout. After exiting the dihedral on the second pitch, there is a place to protect before the small mantel onto the Slav, just use a long sling to reduce drag. Then u got bolts so I thought it was never run out. Bring a couple of large hexes or 2x #4 c4s if u really want to sew it up.
