Description:

Start on the middle of the 3' tall ledge. For a 5.9+ variation, stem against D&D Wall and Horror Movie Wall for about 15' until D&D Wall eases up. Dig the actual limestone chimney moves! WARNING: wear helmet and backpack in case lead falls contact opposite cliff. Erik Moore FA on the harder version, Karl Vochatzer on the stemming variation.

4 out of 5 stars downgrade

On the main route (no stemming), Rona suggested 10a. Beta spoiler. I went up the start keeping my left shoulder toward the wall through the crux. Definitely easier than the next route on the right.

4 out of 5 stars FA - hey, that's me!

It's pretty wild to be stemming on limestone, but here you have it. Go ahead and give stemming off two walls a try. It's pretty cool. Climb is currently very slippery at the bottom 10 feet or so, however with more traffic it is sure to improve.
