3 out of 5 stars Lean enough

Out w/Lynda. With a 60m rope, we did it in 3 pitches, sort of. If you are much bigger than size 8 lady (38" hip) you will likely not make it through the 3 squeeze chimneys. To get through the third (signiature) chimney at the beginning of the third pitch, I had to remove all the gear from my harness, untie, and boulder up into the squeeze. Lynda passed up the gear and packs, tossed me my end of the rope, and tied in short. I then belayed her up into the chimney. About 20' up we popped out of the low-angle chute and reconfigured the belay at the bottom of the final crack. The belay on top at the blocks was reached with about 3' of rope to spare.
