Diagonal Chockstone Chimney

Description 

Scramble up the dirty, left slanting, right facing chimney to a ledge, belay here to avoid rope drag, then cruise up the corner above to a big ledge out left.

Location 

The large chimney to the right of Turbocharge.

Protection 

Lots of gear, but kind of shitty rock

Would make a fun mixed climb, I'd imagine!

The lower chimney is often used as an alternative to P1 of Pegasus, and is quite fun. The upper corner has been pruned and is pleasant. It's definitely better than it looks. It's also an excellent winter route with great protection.
