Description:

Originally went in 3 or 4 pitches, but with a 60 meter rope you can do it in two. Varied crack climbing. Pitch two has a fun, short section of bombay chimney. This is a nice way to approach the coffin. Two bolts with rap hangers are now at 200'. 5.9 Variation for second pitch (and third!) is great warm up for the Coffin.

4 out of 5 stars Fun Climb

I think this climb was really fun, like my tenth trad lead. THe off-width chimney was really really awkward though, I almost would recommend just doing the first pitch. It's harder than a 5.7 move I think.

Got the 1st pitch done right before dusk, rapped from chains. Will have to go back for the 2nd pitch for the OW action.

4 out of 5 stars yup

first pitch i think is the best. the little offwidth section is ok, not hard, but after that the route goes downhill

The whole time I was climbing this I was thinking: "5.7 my ass!"

The LCC trad climbs are all sandbagged.
