Description:

Climb up to the obvious birch beneath the HUGE chimney. Traverse left around an outside corner and then head left and up to the belay. From here climb up to a wide crack and then up the corner to the roof. Follow the twin cracks to the top. EXCELLENT PITCH!!!

4 out of 5 stars The El

Climbed with M. Farnsworth, led the very fun and somewhat difficult long traverse on p. 2. Be ready to build a hanging belay at the end of that pitch, it's a great place to relax and about as exposed as one could be a half rope length above the ground.
