Greg leading the pitch up to Suntan Ledge.

Description 

This seems to be a 1 pitch climb that joins the finish as for Low Pressure & Destination Unknown. Start up the gully between Chair Rock and The Knight. Take the second crack system on the left. Ascend a moderate crack using fingers to wide hands gear. A #3 Friend was nice for the belay on Suntan Ledge. Continue up as for Destination Unknown. Rap 80' off the back off bolts.

The rating came from an old South Platte guidebook.


Location 

The second crack up the gully on the left between Chair Rock and The Knight.


Protection 

Rack to #3 Camalot.

We replaced the rappel slings on the west side on 9.22.07.

We found this climb to be harder than 5.7; we think it goes more at a crappy 5.8+/5.9-.
