Comments: This quality of chimney climbing is a rarity on the Front Range and the views from the top are some of the best in the Flatirons. This climb is not to be missed by those who can "take care of business".

There are enough good placements to make this climb managable but there will still be some "do not fall" sections. Look around and you should be able to find 3-4 bomber placements.

Comments: I'm pretty sure that Litter Box is the short sport/mixed route that begins just around the corner to the left of Long Walk Crack. This is an undocumented line.

Comments: There are chains at the top that also serve a short sport/mixed climb (Litter Box 5.10a) that starts around the corner to the left of this route.

Comments: Despite the meager height, it is a respectable OW pitch (at least by Boulder Canyon standards) for those seeking experience.

Comments: If you aren't smart enough to avoid a route with a name like "The Bowels" (guilty), at least do yourself and your belayer a favor and traverse left into Short Tour at the chockstone instead of topping out into pile of loose rock that lies at the top of the chimney.

Comments: I would suggest bringing gear from .4 C4 (fingers) to #5, with emphasis on the #4 Camalot size.
