Description:

This route climbs the smooth slabs just right of the Great Chimney for 5 long, quality pitches to the summit ridge. Begin 1 or 2 pitches up the Great Chimney to where you can traverse right to an obvious tall pine tree along a narrow ledge. Start 20' right of the pine tree and climb the first 200' tier to a diagonal ledge system. The 2nd tier is climbed by diagonaling 500' up & right to the top. Great route & great exposure! Make sure you are good at placing gear. Most of the climbing is 5.7. All belays are bolted. You can rap the route with 2 ropes. F.A. Les Ellison, Brian & Jonathan Smoot - June 2004
