Description:

Starts with offwidth to chimney. Fun climbing, if a little awkward in places. From the top of the 2nd pitch of Reed's Direct, if the 3rd pitch 5.10OW to the left looks intimidating, go to the right and climb this moderate instead.

4 out of 5 stars A bit

burly for 5.8! But maybe I suck at OW. I found a 4 and a 5 camalot helpful plus 2x #3's.

4 out of 5 stars short

good nice little short chimney to some much easier climbing to the anchors. Bolts on top you can rap from or continue up the Magical Mystery Tour.
