Just right of Hesitation Blues this line climbs to the top of the Nautilus in two pitches. The first pitch climbs the offwidth crack (crux) up along the side of the pillar before squeezing in behind it following a great handcrack to a belay at the top of the pillar. The second pitch climbs this handcrack from a step back across from the pillar and surmounts a small roof (5.8+). Find Rappel Bolts near the top. A good route.

Only did 1st pitch because my party was scared. Super fun and the chimney was no prob. 2 #4s would have sewn up the chimney. I used my #5 on the offwidth boulder exit on the first part of what could have been the 1st of 3 pitches. I clipped the bolt before the chimney exit, however I don't know how much that would have helped.
