A fun climb with good pro. Very good for developing your trad sense, with a little bit of route finding involved and a couple of committing moves.


Follows a crack system 10 feet to the left of Ego Donor. Head left to a fist-sized crack and fight the temptation to go for the bolt; this will only take you off route. Head for the chimney between the two towers above you. There is good pro to be had in the chimney if you look. After the chimney, traverse right and finish on the anchors for Ego Donor.


Standard rack.

A surprisingly fun route that climbs much better than it looks.

At the top, the piton works, or you can bring a big cam for inside the chimney. We placed first pro from ground, and I used foot-size ledges to check gear placements until I was 100% sure I could fall on them, so Second Sight's a good learning route for trad.
