Description 

This route follows the obvious, left-angling crack just to the left of Intertwine (5.8+). Belay from somewhere along the long ramp. Finish by following the second pitch of The Chimney (5.6 G) or exit up right to the Intertwine ledge and rappel from the chains.


Location 

This route is located just to the left of Intertwine. After completing the route either rappel from a threaded chain near the back wall of the Intertwine ledge or if you finish with the second pitch of Chimney, walk off to the right (towards the practice face).


Protection 

Good pro, carry a standard rack. Tree anchors at the top or fixed rappel chains on the Intertwine ledge.

Hate to disagree with Ben, but local consensus (John G., Brian S. and me) is that this pitch is 5.6. It might have been 5.4 BITD when the tree was still there for slinging and clinging.

I agree, 5.6 seems a more appropriate rating. I think it's harder than Board Walk/Green Rout.
