Description 

An old mountaineering classic. A pleasant outing on clean rock.

The first pitch is the hand/layback crack in the center of the buttress. 25 ft, 5.3.

Walk back across the platform under the large pine tree.

The second pitch is the chimney in the next buttress, to the right of "Old Shoes" and "Face-Off". The crux is moving up around a cluster of chockstones. 35 ft, 5.4

Scramble back/up to the buttress that includes the Turret. If you are creative, you can turn this into another pitch!

The third pitch has a few options. (1) The classic is to work your way up across the ledges to the left of the chimney; or, (2) Go up the chimney. 35 ft, 5.3 up the chimney.


Location 

The right hand (south) edge of Railroad Amphitheater. It begins just yards from the tracks.


Protection 

Finger- to hand-sized for the cruxes.
