Gobbler, 5.10a
2nd Pitch- 100’- 5.10a/ Move out right into the nice crack and follow it up until you reach the small angled roof above. Protect and jam your way up to a bolt on the slab face to your left. Via a very athletic move, traverse into the bottomless chimney to your left. This takes a leap of sorts and is definitely the move of the route. Once in the tight chimney, use chimney technique to ascend until the arête gives way to easier climbing. Make sure to use long slings if you are going to protect into the chimney itself. I had a friend who said he got a rope stuck here as he was ascending! Move up to the fixed belay and a small one person ledge.
