5.9 * Crack Test Dummies Sport 75m, 2

Starts downhill and to the left on the taller spire. Look for the chimney system that goes up -- the climb starts in/up this chimney.

There is a short 3rd pitch to the top of the pillar on old iron rings. It is short and easy -- and the old iron is still solid (as of 2012).

Descend by rappelling down "Getting Wood".
