Chimney Rock, located right in HVCG, has a few nice routes - Pinched Rib (5.10b), a short bolted dike, The Flue, an oft overlooked fun 5.8 handcrack, and West Face Overhang (5.7) are the most popular. Damper (5.9), just left of Pinched Rib, is a good wide crack to practice your fist jamming/offwidth technique.
The new road into HVCG passes directly by the south face of Chimney Rock. The quartz dike is Pinched Rib. If that isn't enough direction, find Intersection Rock and walk NE.
