This climb is fairly disorganized with a finger crack system to a corner chimney. Find a key left hand before pulling out of the chimney and hand jam up onto a tree ledge to the left. The chimney is DIRTY and mind the critters in the cracks down low. Until it gets cleaned off (if at all) belayers beware of falling debris! It might be possible to move right onto the face after the chimney and go to the slung tree left of Fine Line. From there it could even link up with Fine Line and become another way to get up to The Gift and Gift Certificate. At first I thought it was a stupid climb but it turned out to be interesting.


Left of Fine Line. Its the obvious crack/ chimney. The feature is marked in the Lambert and Shull guide.


Small and medium gear low. Get creative in the chimney. There is a sketchy chalk-stone near the top that I slung. You can walk off from the before mentioned tree.

If anyone extends this route past the ledge where I stopped please let me know so I can edit and credit!

Phil, I don't know when you did your FA, but a friend and I did this same line a few years back, maybe eight or so. We suspected it had been done before, but jokingly called the line S&M after our first names, Scott and Mitch. Fun line though with some interesting climbing. Good to have it documented.

I thought this might be the case, just couldn't find anything on it. Did you take it higher or have any info about what's above?
