|You can go the Chimney facing either way and also once you are a few feet up you can use just the face holds too. I'm pretty sure there's no bolts on the top so you have to boulder it, not really a free solo.|

This route is of significant historical importance. Throughout the time climbers have been crawling all over Stoney Point, this route served as THE route to learn the chimney technique.
The RCS (Rock Climbing Section of the Sierra Club...who came here all the time for many decades before becoming extinct in the late 70's) would drop a TR on this route at just about every outing, and newbie climbers would get their first wack at chimney-style movement.
I did my first chimney here when I was just an eight year old kid in 1963, and I imagine thousands of others did also...only most of them were probably a lot older.
