The top bolts you see approaching on top are for the "Howdy Dude" face. The other pair nearer to the left will rope for this off-width crack and chimney.

Description:

The start is a body jam and left mantle, to standing ledges on both sides. Try the left face and the cave, or go up the right face and crack. Or, go down on the other side of the big paw and back up as an overhang face behind the pine tree. Or, wander left from the start onto "Howdy Dude" which uses this base for its right start.

3 out of 5 stars "Do you ever climb?"

After a generous offer of a harness and very well done belay from Jeremy on Sat., was given another generous offer of a harness and very well done belay from Anthony on Sun., with Adam very generously taking photos very well. Maybe not much of a climb compared to other climbs; but compared to nothing in over two years, it was encouraging enough for me to order a harness, with other gear to follow.
