the start of the climb

Description 

This route is the left-tending crack system just to the west of Bolted Chimney. Don't be scared off by the chossy-looking appearnace of this climb, it's better than it looks. Each of the three bulges present slightly different challenges. With some more traffic, the route would clean up nicely.

Protection 

Standard rack. Each of the three "bulges" can be protected by multiple placements, which I'd recommend due to the somewhat unstable condition of the rock. You can descend off of Bolted Chimney's anchors.
