Stilgar's Wild Ride, 5.8

3rd - 120’- 5.8R/ Move up the steep section below the huge block. The features really show up here and surmounting the block is fairly tame for the grade. Continue up the steep chimney having to employ true chimney technique as the chimney continues to narrow. There is fixed gear off to climbers left following a whitish crack which allows for a more protected path. However, I believe the route was intended to run out the beautifully varnished chimney to the very end where you make an easy pull out onto a small ledge out left below what becomes only a crack leading up from the chimney. Good medium pro for belay.
