This pitch is a 'good' finish to a climb of the chimney on Glass Catcher Buttress and the crud filled gully that follows it. However this pitch is still full of loose rock that can be quite dangerous for both climber and belayer. Mostly 3rd class until near halfway up the pitch then transitioning to 4th and 5th class for the last 50 feet of the route.

Descent Options:

Walk off, or head on to Skyline Buttress.
