Yellow Peril: Free standing pillar
|297 page views|
Use your head in preparation for the classic crux move in the overhanging choss chimney. We'll climb it again if you lead. First ascent: Nordic Fest weekend 1977.
To reach the start, rappel into the gap between the bluff and free-standing pillar at the more southerly of the two Chimney Rocks. Return carefully from climb. A Tyrolean traverse has been used for this purpose, but is not really worth the fuss.
Original ascent involved the arduous placement of a couple small pieces and a futilely marginal piton at the crux; to bolster false confidence and prolong sense of terror.
