This is the large-ish chimney to the right of a dike near the western end of the Unreported Rock formation.

Start up the chimney, shortly stepping out to the left onto the face and the dike, follow the face between two dikes to the top.

You can toprope The Unreported and Don't Overlook from the same anchor you build for this route.


Far west end of the south face of Unreported Rock. Nice and sunny.


Standard rack and one bolt. I placed one pink tricam low and pro above is sparse, but the climbing is easy.

Nice route, good airy step out of the chimney to the face, good pro for the experienced leader, definitely a recommended route. I do think this route is more than 40 feet just to the ledge before the bolt, and another 25 to the top, about 75 total.
