  • Description 

    This route was recently extended through the large roof block at the top. There has been an additional bolt placed that protects the climbing to the roof.

    Climb past 4 bolts and gear to a transition in the chimney just below the large roof crack block. Climb the rail through the large roof to a 2 bolt anchor. The roof is protected by a #3 camelot. It is possible to use a bigger cam but it's not necessary.

    Note: bring 2 shoulder length slings to extend the 2 bolt anchor for top-roping.


    When exiting the chimney, it'll be on the left side, across from Chimney Man. Start off of large flat ledge.


    "Small" selections of cams from red C3 to #3 camelot. It's possible to use a #4-6 out in the roof.
