BETA PHOTO: Climbing jam crack towards chains.
This is found on Rupley tower E. From the gully between towers C and D, go up the chimney to the southwest (right side facing downhill). The route starts at a wide crack by a small tree. Directly opposite from an opening overlooking the tri-level spire. Stay mostly right of the crack to keep the route at the grade. Fun route for a new leader.
Bring a full set of nuts and cams in the 1-2.5" range. I used a #4 camalot near the bottom to keep from rolling all the way down to the Tri-level spire. Chains at the top.

I have now climbed this a number of times, call me wimpy if you must, but I think this is harder than 5.6.

Yup, more of a 5.7! When someone calls me a wimp or puss I just agree and acknowlede them with a nod.

Good climb - great pro all the way up. Could be a sketchy start if you try using 5.6 "footwork"- I give it 5.7.
