Ben leading the ice pitch (pitch 3).


Hike up road till you are below the Outward Bound Wall and "The Calling". Hike up hillside trending/traversing to the left till you are below the chimney system on the far left side of the Outward Bound Wall.

Pitch 1: M4/M5. Climb up chimney mostly using your hands and the occasional tool placement. There is good gear on the right wall. Climb ice over bulge and clip fixed pin on the right wall. Continue up rock and ice with little pro to ledge on left where you can build a belay (small to hand-size cams).

Pitch 2: M3/M4. Climb up easy snow and move through short chimney to good ledge on right with crack. Build belay with small cams and #3 Camalot.

Pitch 3: WI4. Traverse out left to the ice and continue up steep ice to a tree with slings. Belay here.

Descent: Rig you rappel off the tree and traverse left on ledges from the belay tree to a notch. From this notch, you are looking down into another gully. Rappel in to this gully. When you are past the steep section (about 30 feet) pull you ropes and hike the rest of the way down gully back to your packs.


This is the far left chimney on the Outward Bound Wall. It is down and right of "Giant Steps" and left of "White Trash."


Single rack of cams from smallest to #3 Camalot, screws with extra stubbies.

This is a fun short route. Would be a good day if linked with 'Giant Steps'.
