The start of the route deep in the chimney.


Walk back deep into the large chimney and start up. The crux comes when you have to traverse to the outside of the chimney and do a bit of offwidth/ face move past a constriction. Using the face and chimney, continue up with one more awkward move to gain the large ledge and a two bolt anchor.

There is a a second pitch that goes at 5.7 or 5.10 depending on your choice.


This route is the obvious, deep chimney 20' left of No Name 4.


Nuts and single set from small to a #4 (maybe a #5).
