  • Description 

    This sustained and interesting climb makes one work a bit for the gear. The first pitch shares the start with the Yellow Spur direct start, and also shares a portion (the leaning slot) with One and a Half Hours of Power. The second pitch also merges with One and a Half Hours of Power. While the rock is generally clean, there are a couple of loose sections to be negotiated on the 1st pitch. Still, the overall quality is pretty good, and it's fairly challenging at the grade. A worthy adventure, especially if you've done most of the other routes in the neighborhood.


    Location 

    This starts with the Yellow Spur direct start just left of the regular Yellow Spur start. Where the YS takes a hard right, go left into the left-facing corner. Belay just above the roof after the 1st pitch, and take the second pitch all the way to "Almost Red Ledge". Walk off left (north) to the West Chimney rappels, two single rope raps will get you to the ground.


    Protection 

    Bring the usual small cams, nuts, and RPs, plus lots of long slings. No bolts anywhere, so build natural anchors at the end of each pitch.
