Description:

This climb is located to the right of Zipper. Pitch 1 is 60 to 70 feet long to a two-bolt anchor with chains-5.8-pretty moderate off-width. Pitch 2 starts up the off-width to the left of Tool or Die (hand crack size), probably about 80 to 90 feet to a double bolt anchor (you can't see these from inside the chimney slot at the top, but they are on the slab to the right, above your head). A strenuous off-width, harder than the first pitch, definitely need a #4 and #5 BD camalot. You can either chimney up the slot at the top directly to the bolts or climb straight back up and out of the chimney and then downclimb the slab to the bolts (not too bad). Rap straight from the anchors for the climb.

4 out of 5 stars Just the first pitch.

Got my knee stuck six feet below the anchors. Thank god for the hero jug, otherwise I would've had to hang to get it unstuck.
