Description 

This well-protected pitch has no doubt been climbed many times over the centuries, but as it's not in the guidebooks and we've been climbing it a bunch, figured the addition here would give others a nice alternative to the often crowded first pitch of the West Face route.


Location 

This route starts just to the right of the chimney that is right of the start of the West Face route and stays between the West Face and Polyester Leisure Suit and finishes at the anchors for either climb.


Protection 

Single rack of cams, nuts.
