Description 

This is a compelling route judging from the topo.... 4 pitches of 5.11 in a row, mostly cracks, but a good facey pitch. You know, hey let's go do Flapjack. Now, just head down the Chillumstone (one 70m fine). Well, topos don't tell the whole story- crappy rock on p2 makes for a tedious pitch, it's hard right were the rock is bad and whoever put the route up drilled 1/4" threaded bolts. Anyway, it's an ok route, and the climbing would be really good if it was on splitter stone.


Location 

Go down Chillumstone, do the rap (single 70m is perfect) and head across the ledge heading toward Blackjack, it has some 5th class moves that would be bad if anything happened, easy to rope up if desired. Start in a small, left-facing corner approximately 100m below and to the left of Blackjack. Look for some bolts about 70' up trending rightward. Top out on some ledgey terrain and either head up staying right on ridge (recommended and exposed) or venture into the oak and bushwhack up the gully to your right. Gandalf's Beard is on the wall across the gully.


Protection 

Standard rack with extras in 1"-1.5" and thin hands, we brought 1 each #3 & #4 Camalot. Lots of long runners help because of the traversing nature of the route. Again, the lead bolts are 1/4" threaded, but the belay bolts are beefier.
