Classic chimney climb at Tamarind Village

Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>


Chimney Sweep climbs inside the obvious chimney at Tamarind Village. Although it's called "Chimney Sweep" the only chimney technique involved is within the first 15 feet to get to the first bolt. The rest is pretty mellow face climbing up to a two-bolt anchor. The crux in my opinion is the start but beyond that... it's a good climb.
