Original start up chimney slot. A funner start goes up an S-shaped splitter crack on a boulder off to the left. Gaining a ledge, step right to face a hand/finger upper crack.

Descent Options:

Rappel off slings on top. Careful pulling the rope to avoid snags.

Short route, crack is real thin, ripped the skin of my nails trying to shove my fingers in. Good practice for thin cracks.
