Description:

The route starts on slab then goes to lower angle chimney. Easy to protect in crack in back of chimney. Once you get out of the chimney you follow a wider crack or do some face moves then a bit of awkward climbing on a thin crack to the top. There are trees for a natural anchor. You can then rap off slings.

3 out of 5 stars rope solo

with new Silent Parnter. Ok route but kind of a mess dealing with the SP in the tight spots.

2 out of 5 stars Hard 7 Face

Awkward chimney and then the 5.7 face move seemed pretty tricky to me. Didn't seem like a real quality climb to me, especially compared to some of the others in the area.

4 out of 5 stars First

Squeeze chimney I've led. Good intro; crack above squeeze is shallow, dirty and not as straight forward as it looks. Watch out for the crowds, it's popular.

4 out of 5 stars A workout

like any other squeeze chimney. Bring extra 1's and 75's for the top which is surprisingly shallow crack.
