Chimney Top Rock is probably the most recognizable geologic feature in the Red River Gorge. Of course, if you were to ask many die hard sport climbers you might get a few scratched heads.
Chimney Top is a monolithic pillar at the tip of the ridge that is separated from the main cliff by a 3-5 foot chimney. The chimney itself is a 150' route (though closed) called Chimney's Chimney which dates back to the earliest climbing days of the RRG.
