Description:

Climb the chimney between the marge column and the main cliff. There's a finger crack in the back that'll take all the nuts that you can stuff into it. A bolt protects the last bit of face.

Descent Options:

Rap/lower

4 out of 5 stars Ain't bad

This actually isn't a bad climb. I've taught people how to lead trad on this thing because the placements are interesting and a rest, stance and gear placement can always be found. It can be dirty though in comparison to other better climbs out there.

3 out of 5 stars not sure about the date

shrugged and wiggled up the chimney at the top; too wide to keep stemming and backstepping
