Great climbing. I’d take the finger crack and traverse over the chimney given the option, but both are fun.

Awesome finish for a journey up the Chief. A bit of everything in this last section with some exposed flake pulling, scary chimney section and then some more exposed ledge walking up the top. Great day!!!

Did the alternate 5.9 start up the bolted arete and found it super challenging and thin. Cruisy for the next three pitches then we bailed onto Butt Light.

Incredible climb. Loved the steep flake in pitch 1, challenging enough to to make you think. Pulled a beached whale over the mantle and didn't manage to impress the soloer below. The scramble up the final pinball-machine style ledges was the icing on the cake. Beauty!

We did the pitch 1 variation (5.9), balancey ledges to an arête with a big move over. It was a relief to get to the crack on the slab above. We linked pitches 3 and 4 and took the "Butt Light" variation.

Fun rambling for first 4 pitches, then when you start to want some real climbing, you're at the base of the 10c pitch, Awesome, sustained and involved climbing on this guy. Makes you work hard for the grade.

Not as good as people say it is. Too many ledges and walks. Kind of like cragging your way up the Chief. The last pitch is a .10b traversing crack which might be a new addition to the route since the publication of the guide.
