2 out of 5 stars short but sweet.

Classic chimneying. The gnarly looking offwidth to the right of "Only the young die brave" really isn't that bad. It's a solid 5.6 offwidth at best with the crux being the short finger crack just off the ground. The second part is an easy (5.6) classically wide chimney. Shoot for the closest giant chockstone. It's only about 20ft until you can get a wide variety of pro in around the chockstone. From there, its an easy romp to the top. Rappel from the tree down the face to the anchors of "Only the young die brave" with a 60m rope.

4 out of 5 stars Wow

This climb is super good. There isn't really any pro on the chimney unless you bring some big bros so don't fall. Other than that, I'm surprised it's not a classic.
