Description:

Straight up the chimney. You can end the route on the ledge area 15 feet below the anchors or you can combine the Too Short route for a tough finish. The start of the route is a little awkward. Be careful on the top, those blocks are loose and will come off.

3 out of 5 stars hrmm, seemed harder then amazing face

This took some stemming and pressing and tricky wedges of hands and feet. Amazing face seemed like a ladder in comparison. Its not that you would fall, wedged into the chimney and all. But its harder to pull up then the few 5.10's and .11's I have done. Also hard to protect as each section has a little ledge to fall onto before the latest pro will help.

And yeah, I didnt like grabbing those boulders that make up the last roof eather. Kinda had to use a little of the one on the far left though. Looks like it has been pretty well pulled on over the years... which means its solid, or just ready to go :oP

I found this route to be alot of fun.

3 out of 5 stars I wonder whats in that cave...

A couple commiting moves with sparse pro in flaring cracks. Using detached blocks always makes for a great day.
