Chutes and Ladders
|1,087 page views|
Thin crack along right side (north side) of rappel gully. Follow the crack straight up to a steep section (crux) and then trend left and follow a wider crack to the top of the North summit.
Good pro - but feels greasy and fingery for a 5.7.
May have a small bush in the crack...
(If you are gripped - you can step off left onto the ledge at the rap anchors just before the layback crux).
On east side, about 50' right and up from Chug-a-lug. Rap single line to notch.
Trad rack - mostly small-medium nuts. Up to #3 camalot at top.

This climbs much better (and stiffer) than it looks.

Loved it! Thin, but solid moves all the way up. Was a bit stiff, but so is pretty much everything else at PP, ha. The pro is great and all you need is a set of nuts, I placed one small cam, but didn't really need too. The belay is one huge bolt and can be backed up nicely with a #3 camalot. The crack is a bit dirty with pebbles and dead vegetation, but don't let that fool you, it's great fun.

Note that Dungeons and Dragons aka Burnt Toast 11b is the bolted line just right of Chutes.
