Iron Messiah, III, 5.10c

  • 6th Pitch - 5.8/
  • Fun but pushy chimney squeeze straight up and further into the chimney. Keep your gear to the sides and scrape for every conceivable feature to stem, squeeze and stuff yourself higher with. Hard to place gear, but you can use your Camelot 4 and 5 and a pin awaits you as you move out and on top of the chimney onto whitish/sandy rock. Turn left and continue up past one bushy ledge to the next for your belay. Stay left versus right here to stay on route. The sandy and loose section will give you several gear placements.

    I don't really like climbing chimneys, but this picture is just beautiful and it does look like fun.

    Re: Beautiful!

    it bruised me up a little, way too much frigging gear getting in the way (as is the norm)...but yeah, in the end, I love struggling through chimneys, particulary when it is this hot! Cheers.
