tunneling up the chimney to place the #6 hig...

Description 

Maybe the steepest 5.10 trad route in LCC. Head up the corner on some funky jams and jugs until you can fanangle you way into the squeeze chimney. Work your way up a bit and reach out and around to clip the bolt. Scoot back down the chimney and come out and around the last bulge.

There seems to be a "thank-god" hold or feature everywhere you want one.


Location 

Up the slope from the Trinities. It is a large, very steep, face coming up from the trinities. It looks intimidating and rightfully so.
take a 0.75 camalot for the belay.


Protection 

There is one bolt on the route. We used a 0.75 or a 1 camalot for the anchor lower belay. A single set of cams up to a #4 along with a new #6 would be more than enough.

The anchor up top is a small old rusty bolt with a doubtful looking hanger and a tree or 2. Bring some webbing and a knife.
