This chimney is the route. Don't confuse it for the chimney you see earlier on the approach. That chimney is shady chimney

Comments: Loose rock everywhere (it is the San Juans!). We used a 70m and roped the first pitch, I was able to with just a bit of simul'ing get to a large rock on a very large, flat area for the first belay. We solo'd after that.

As of a week ago, the snowfield was about 150' worth of approach. Did it it sneakers cutting steps with an ice ax.

Comments: The start gets a little tricky, then a section of shit rock in the middle. Nothing big, but I did knock a few quarter-sized pebbles down towards the belayer. Finish is really nice, get on the two cracks as opposed to going left and around. Both cracks are very positive.

Comments: Not doing much slab climbing, I found this hard. Getting to the first bolt took a while, I had to aid to the second bolt and to move past it. Hence my 5.11-.

Comments: Instead of traversing the snowfield around the East summit to gain the depression between the summits, we felt a direct ascent up the first easy chute to the East summit was safer due to avalanche concerns. Easier climbing than the short 10 ft climb onto the East ridge from the depression though you still need to climb that to reverse.

Our route therefore went over the East, to the West summit, then cut beneath the East summit on the way back.

Comments: I attempted to lead the crux and backed out, I had previously seen two others just before me fail one taking a rough hit on the slab. We went to the right before the crux. Going to the left looks much easier (in fact one of the guys did this), but it also looked too far off route. I liked the idea listed below about unclipping all but the last two bolts and get a very active belay, but that wasn't really an option for me.

In terms of bolting, I think it could be better done. The fix is 1 of 2... more >>
