Starts cool, gets cooler. Off-width skills needed. There is a great belay station at the top.


Starts on a crack system to the right of "The Green Lantern". Go straight up and then traverse a bit left to the obvious chimney. Belay in the alcove above. Walk off the spire to the north.


Tri-cams and some nuts will get the job done but cams will help on the bottom.

Great Climb...No anchors though :(

Does this go left (up the chimney) or right (around the arete) towards the top?
