- Aka: Fat Merchant's Crack
(5.10b X) Stuff yourself deep into the chimney and slither up 50 ft to the scary unprotected offwidth crux. Look for the manky hidden piton, and follow the narrowing, protectable crack up to the belay ledge.
(5.7 R) Follow the corner to easy runout face climbing to the South Notch. Finish with the last pitch of 'Harding's Chimney' and a walk-off descent.
Huge pro 5" to 12".
