Description:

Right of "Report to Sickbay" is a right-leaning ramp with a wide crack to layback. This is it. If the mossy chimney above the crack is wet, there are anchors to the left. Otherwise continue up to slings on a stout rhododendron. There is also a 5.8 TR problem direct up the face (starts with a short hand crack, likely the start to "Blue Begoonias").

Descent Options:

Anchor situation unknown. Do not climb this route if it seems likely that the mossy chimney is wet/unclimbable! UPDATE (11/1/2007): 2-bolt rap station now on the face left of the start of the chimney.

3 out of 5 stars Crack climbing

Hmmm...tougher than I thought it would be. Guess I need more practice crack climbing. First section - vertical smaller crack was difficult for me for some reason. It was a chilly day but when sun was on the rock, not bad. Rock is very rough and will tear your hands up if you don't tape them well!
