Description:

Obvious chimney system to the right of Thin Air. Historic line with awkward yet rewarding climbing. If you don't know how to climb a chimney, you better learn first! Will seem much harder than 5.7 to a sport climber or budding trad leader. There are several runouts with ground/ledge fall potential.

4 out of 5 stars standard route

Started on the standard route before moving onto Toe crack. Was a good fun start with a good bit of pro potential. Just need to keep an ey eout for the right spot for the right pro.

4 out of 5 stars interesting

always seen people climbing the route and it looked fun. partner did first two pitches of toe crack, in one pitch. then i groveled up the chockstone and lead the somewhat sketchy and moderately not-protected right wall. the last pitch was dirty and not too fun. my partner exited left onto a harder slab.

4 out of 5 stars Standard Route

Did first two pitches of Toe Crack and finished Standard Route to the Thin Air ledge. Third pitch has a lack of pro, fourth pitch finishes left if one climbs before getting too deep into the gully.

Switched leads.
