Description 

The name says it all, and this is definitely one of the best! Nine Pins shares the first 3 bolt with this route but where Nine Pins goes left continue straight up. Vertical climbing leads you to an incredible crux sequence and then a nice edge with an anchor


Location 

This route is easily located by just following the cold air to the refrigerator chimney. Once at the Chimney just look at the right hand wall.


Protection 

12 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

We went to climb this route on August 5th 2012 and there was a chalk skull and crossbones at the base and sticks in the first bolt. We took this as a sign and stayed off it. Is there anything dangerous about this route? Did the rockfall damage something?

This route no longer exists due to rockfall.

This route just needs a bolt added around the 5 bolt or so, and a good brush down, then it'll be climbable again... and a little bit harder
