Description 

Parachute Pants is a bit of an obscurity, but it may be worth your time if you happen to be at the base of Conads.

Start up the bushy crack on the right side of the buttress. Once the crack peters out, traverse up and left on flared pods. This is the crux and a little runout due to the flared nature of the pods. Once you get through the pods you'll reach a crack that continues up the left side of the buttress and tops out on the roosting ramp below Wolf's Tooth.


Location 

Parachute Pants is on the small, separate buttress just to the left of Conads.


Protection 

I remember running it out through the flared pods but maybe offset cams would work?... Not sure.

Otherwise bring a standard rack of nuts and small cams up to #3 or #4 Camalot.
