More or less adequate protection. Might be a little run out on some easy territory, but everything

Description:

Climb the chimney to the right of Gepthart-Dufty. If you do all three pitches you have to walk off. I strung the first two pitches togther as one, then rapped off. I'd avoid the second rappel station listed in the guide book... the tree with the slings is VERY shady.
