Kind of an Eldo hidden gem, this 2-pitch route ascends the left-margin of the steep face in between the West Chimney and the Yellow Spur. About 1/3 bolted, 1/3 gear, and 1/3 runout (on mostly moderate ground), with good rock. We did this in 2 pitches, though it would go in one very long one. Pitch one climbs up into a corner past 2 bolts (10+). Climb up and left around a roof and up runout moderate ground to a one-bolt belay (supplement with small cams or a double length sling around a horn) below a small ledge. Pitch two climbs up and right (small cams) to a bolt below a small roof. Sequential 5.11 climbing on thin holds leads over the roof to another bolt, then about 30 feet of runouts and occasional gear lead to another bolt and a 5.10 move. Above this is an exciting 5.10 overhang protected by 2 bolts. Belay at a tree on a good ledge. To descend, scamble to the next ledge, and traverse left to the West Chimney raps, or if you have 2 ropes, rap to the ground from the tree.

A redpoint, but for all intents and purposes this is an onsight. About a year ago, I fell off the 10d low section on a blazing hot August day, then down-led it. This time I cruised that part and then onsighted through the 5.11 upper cruxes in a single pitch.
