This is the "backside" and less popular side of Chimney Rock; it gets morning sun and afternoon shade and has a handful of routes from 5.8 to 5.12c despite it's large size. Recommended routes on this side include The Flue (5.8) a classic face to slanting hand crack, Blind Ambition (5.11a) a technical and balancy face that requires some additional gear and Camouflage (5.12c) a highly technical face that sees little action despite it's easily accessible location.
Approach from points within the Campground or park in the day use parking lot beneath Intersection Rock and walk east to the visible formation and then circle around the left side of the formation to reach the east face.
