3/4 stars all the way!
Steep and wide, this climb is literally a hidden classic concealed within the big chimney (great to escape summer heat and crowds). For variety and physicality, this climb delivers. I found myself pulling face moves to handstacks. Awesome!
I used pro from yellow alien sized (fingers), to a single #4. I believe I used only a #3 camalot and #4 camalot for as wide as the climbing gets, but doubles to #3 may be desirable.
Oh yeah, and don't dab the start by stemming back! You will only be cheating yourself!

|A bit dirty but a good climb. Typical snowshed in both steepness and variety. That roof is tricky.|

|Stout climb. The rock is a bit suspect in spots especially within the chimney but the pro is pretty bomber. Protect the right crack underneath the roof as the left seems to have some hollowness.|
