Start up the diagonal crack until you can reach the steep wall. Keep moving up with varied moves and an interesting lack of right footholds in the long crux section.


Right of Date With Destiny, starts in a little alcove.


Bolts, anchor on top

A great route that deserves more attention than it gets. Mellow start leads to crux: small handholds with imaginary footholds. Fun gym-like moves lead to 2nd crux involving a flat sloped hold. Climb progressively easier, but no less fun, moves to anchor.

Stemming to wall across chimney is off-route (reduces difficulty to 5.11).
