Description:

Goes up the steep face forming the right wall of a huge corner (Chitlin Corner).

P1: Start on Chitlin Corner, and follow this about 50 feet (some loose rock). A juggy crack system takes off up the vertical right wall of the corner to a narrow belay ledge. Gear anchor.

P2: Climb the finger crack up a shallow corner to a small roof. Pass this roof on the right, and continue up cracks to a slabby runout at the top. Bolt anchor (common to Chitlin Corner).

Three rappels: down into the corner to the first anchors, next rappel to your left for the next set of anchors, then to the ground. (alternately a 60m rope will make the second anchor. make sure you have knots in the ends of the rope and the middle is in the bolts. the swing is less diffocult, and more fun, from the top than from the Chitlin's corner anchor.)

5 out of 5 stars Green Mountains

Extraordinary route! An exposed belay perch, deceptively hard roof, and very exposed climbing in a superlative location. Having this route within ten feet of Chitlin's Corner makes that part of Precipice one of the finest pieces of rock I've ever been on.

5 out of 5 stars My first nut fall!

Fell on the smallest nut on my rack, that was blindly placed.

Very sweet route, and the exposure on the second pitch is awesome! Crux is one of those "the $%#&ing hold is facing the wrong way" sort of things.
