Description:

A steep, fairly long water chute is the basis for this climb; steep near the end especially for the grade; avoid the line at the beginning, and just hike up the slabs on the left; deceptively long - 60m+ from the standard belay stance.

Descent Options:

Walk across to top to rap slings (if not removed) on chock boulder near Mama Woosley, or continue down via chimney downclimb near Buissonier (see Descent Option for that).

3 out of 5 stars harder than 5.3

The first 2/3's is virtually a 4th class scramble and unprotected. The last 3rd was definitely harder than 5.3, maybe 5.6 even. If you're a beginner climber, beware.
