BETA PHOTO: Jogging.

Description 

Identify the mossy slot and start climbing. The first 15 feet offer the technical crux, but you can find decent feet. Gain an easy handcrack which leads you to a shelf. Step left a few feet to the base of an imposing 35-foot chimney. The Kelman guide suggests building an anchor here. With wise use of runners, you can run the whole climb in one pitch. Armbar, jam, and otherwise grunt your way up. You can find reasonable holds for your right foot and heal-toes with your left. The back of the chimney offers good gear.

I thought this climb was of the same quality as Intimidation (which I followed), but a little easier. Enjoy!


Location 

You can find this route between A Dream of Fat Antelope and Intimidation on the northwest side of Blair III. Look for a moss-covered slot. The slot is below and just to the right of an obvious chimney starting 40 feet up.


Protection 

Orange or red Mastercam up to a #4 or 5 Camalot. I had 2 #3 Camalots and used both. Save some gear for the belay as there are no bolted anchors.

Agree, easier, or at least no more difficult than Intimidation, 5.9+.
