This is the obvious off-width/chimney climb to the left of Smooth Torquer. Place your gear in the smaller crack that is on the right and wiggle up the route with your back against the felt wall. It is fairly dirty, but solid rock and fun moves make it worth your time (and with more ascents it is sure to get better). A hollow sounding flake is near the top, but seems to be solid enough...just tred lightly.
Left side of Rock Garden Wall and left of Smooth Torquer.
Gear to 2" and bolted anchor.

This is a really nice climb and protects well. Unfortunately it's dirty higher up but it's still worth tying in for. A little bit of cleaning by each climber would do this line a world of good.

The finish of the route moves past a broken flake on the right side of the chimney. Avoid loosing this on your partner.
No need for big gear, cams to 3". Double length sling to lasso a block to protect final moves, or run it out about 8'
