So has no one else really ever climbed this thing? This is the giant, obvious chimney system seen from the parking lot, no? Sorry, I dont have my book on me at the moment. I've been eying that thing for years.

Brad, will I die if I attempt it?

F4?

If you do, be sure to soft brush the route.
I'm not worthy.

Zay - I know you have asked about this route on at least one other occasion - that backside chimney route is not what this thread is referring to (but you probably already realize that).
That one is called North Summit Crack 5.7
2 pitches - all gear.
double cams to 4 inches and stoppers.
2nd crack to the left of the chimney leads to a ledge 60 feet up - traverse in to the chimney and belay from gear.
continue 100 more feet in the chimney unprotected until you can join Regular Route (on the left side) - finish on that.

I haven't done the route yet but I want to.
I've done the Regular Route and the 4th Class to the south summit.
Kat and I also put up a new bolted route - Dare to Declare that is fun.

happy hunting.

JC

Zay:

1.  You will die whether or not you attempt it.

2. You can't see this route from the parking lot - it's on the opposite side of Proclamation.

3. Did you read this thread from the beginning to see that the way I originally left the route - with a weird tree tie-off to the side - seemed dumb to me these years later, so I added two lead bolts to make it a real route?
