Description:

On the right side of the Grunt Chamber is an overhanging chimney/flair. It is quite short and I never thought it deserved its 5.10 rating. You decide. The name comes from the sausage, which it apparently turned the first ascent party into. I thought Kilo Crack was the harder of the two, but I had Kilo Crack ruthlessly wired. Go climb them. They are fun! F.A. Duane Raleigh, Rick Thomas (1980)

3 out of 5 stars I'm with drub on this one

Not sure where the 10a came from on this one - it has a fun, if too short, jamming section. I guess the chimney could be 10a or more if you chose to ignore every other feature in the area, like the other crack/seam system running parallel to the wide one, just inches away; could provide good OW/tight squeeze practice w/ easy opportunity for bailing, I guess, except it leans back right away. Still, I'm happy to have done it, no "mini-epic" or anything. Belay at top was easy, could have been purely "positional", i.e. friction and being wedged in would have been plenty, but I went ahead and anchored in a bit just to be sure.
