Description:

Just left of where the wire fence brings you up to Draper's Bluff, starts ouside of a huge roof with big prow/boulder next to it. Climb to the upper overhanging and exposed crux. Breathe deeply, get in your pro, and figure out how to get into the upper chimney, to the top of the cliff. Your belayer won't see you in the chimney, but will probably hear you gasping and panting. Watch out for rope drag when you set pro. Chain anchors make the top belay and rap significantly easier on the ropes as well as the trees at the top. Make sure your ropes are equal for the rap back down; knot the ends! Recommended!

4 out of 5 stars Very intimidating

Crux move is a bear. But you can stack the pro under the little roof.
