This canyon is located just below the Ceder Crest communication towers. The most prominant feature within this canyon is Muralla Grande ("great wall"). The canyon is named after the chimney looking spire south of Muralla Grande.
See map, and each specific climbing wall/spire for specific directions.

As of April 11, 2011 the approach to the Clandestine Wall was impassable due to snow covered ice on the steep sections of the Chimney Canyon trail. With crampons and axes (not kidding here) the hike might be managable; with our approach shoes, however, it was downright dangerous and we turned around to go climb at the stuff in Echo Canyon instead.
