An exciting journey up the steep north facing prow of the wall. The route has excellent exposure and super sweet finger locks, but only for the final 40 feet or so.


Belay for the route at a small alcove almost on top of the Thimble, then 4th class up some ledges to the actual start of the climbing. Follow the obvious chimney until you reach a large flake, then traverse right on to the steep corner and start of the awesome finger crack. Lowering off is possible from the chains anchors but will twist your rope a bit.


A mix of nuts and cams from smallest to 2.5" bring extra in the 1" to 1.75" range.

Chains on top.
