Jim warming up on "Choss Pile" (a.k.a. Left Lane)

Description 

A fun and sustained climb along an arete. Climb up about 15 ft to a small ledge and the first bolt (it seems a little high but its not that bad). Continue to the top following the bolts along the way.

  • RCM&W #55, p. 126


Protection 

Bolts to two old rusty chains that could use replacing, you might want to leave the last bolt clipped as a backup if top roping. Currently in the queue for rebolting. Please use your own hardware for top roping.

A new anchor was recently placed around the corner and right from the original anchor. In its current configuration the rope goes over a sharp edge. If you are top roping I would recommend bringing some longer slings to extend the anchor over this edge.
