Description 

Easy slab climbing to the top of holiday block. Follow a crack that zig zags right then left and up into a chimney. There is nice stemming to be had at the top of the route. A very good trad lead for beginners.


Location 

Northern most corner of the Holiday Block. Look for the bolts to Cruise This, and about 20 feet to the left is Chimney approach. At the top of the climb, you can see the sky through the crack as the rock separates about 12-18 inches.


Protection 

Good pro. Mid range cams.
