The first feature of the climb is a nice left-leaning corner. It is short, but steep and protects well.

After this, go directly up through challenging thin face or to the right which is better protected, but has slightly friable rock. Either way, clip the bolt and be relieved, for a little while. Continue left through more run out and then up.

This is an impressive lead. It felt much harder than Seventh Sojourn at Faded Rock even though they have the same rating in the guidebook.


In the middle of Chimney Rock, walk to the right of FIUTT until you see a very clean left leaning corner. Start at the bottom of the corner.


Cams to #2 Camalot and some nuts. Smaller stuff is more useful.
