|The Old Woman - West Face
A nice chimney with fair protection. It gets its name from the fact that you climb a short chimney/flake on the left, then traverse right into the upper half of the more obvious chimney. Rappel off from the top.
This route is on the southwest face of Old Woman. It is the first major crack system to the right of Double Cross.
Gear to 4 inches.

Also, if you plan on knocking out some climbs on the east face, you can scramble easily over to the Toe Jam/bearded cabbage anchors directly across on the opposite side and rap from them.

Tricky move out of the chute at the beginning of the climb... 1st time I've ever used an elbow jam
