Submitted By: Kris Gorny on Feb 1, 2008 on Mountain Very aesthetic and fun climb. Several variations exist with varying difficulty. The standard line (WI 3+) takes the center of the flow and moves up and right below the vertical column at the top. The column goes at WI4+. The so-called Chia Direct combines the top column with curtains to the right.

3 out of 5 stars different variation

Someone was on the main portion, so i took a thin, somewhat sketchy line to the left. Probably WI4. Kind of fun. Hard to protect the bottom.

4 out of 5 stars Did Twice for the Warm up

Cranked up the middle weakness of Chia center then up the pillar for the finish. Came back down and did Chia Direct, the harder more vertical section to the right under the over hanging rock face. Sick.
