Description 

Few people have bothered with this dirty, wet, mossy, ugly, cobweb infested, chimney. I've done it twice, haha. I like that sort of thing.

Out of respect for the average climber, I only gave it one star; however, if you are in to the kind of climbing described above you will love it.

Chimney up, passing a large chock stone and top out returning to the beautiful world above.

Location 

Just left of the 5.8 Crack by the Road, there is a dirty chimney.

Protection 

Standard rack.

Is there a tree at the top? or do you come down from the anchors to the right?
