Jon beneath the "Black Hole"

Description 

Calling this a chimney does it no justice. It is more of a crack corner system with good pro. You only do about 5 feet chimneying on the entire climb. From the top of the chockstone climb straight up to crack in headwall (5.9-) or move right and up then back left to crack(5.7).


Location 

The obvious chimney you see when you reach the Heliosphere.


Protection 

Standard rack to 3 inch cam size.

it might be good for the belayer to wear a helmet; you'll be showering them with cat litter and the occasional larger piece.
