Henning on Son of a Great Chimney Direct.

Description 

Climbs along the West Bluff Trail just south and just north of Prospect Point. Arbitrarily, this area starts left-to-right with Son of Great Chimney. Climbs around the corner to the left (Dance of Ghost Psamead, etc) are included in Big Toe.


Getting There 

At the intersection of the Fire Road and the West Bluff Trail. Climbs are right off the trail towards the Lake. As you stand on Prospect Point you look to your left at the Lost Face overhangs, and you look to your right at the Great Chimney buttress.

Devils Lake. Isaac Therneau on Wild West Homo on a hot July day. July '08.

Wild West Homo 5.11- 6c 22 VIII+ E3 5c WI : Devil's Lake : ... : Great Chimney Area
Wild West Homo sits high atop the West Bluff, and overlooks everything from its poignant perch. This slightly overhanging line is not your typical DL 5.11-, and is an excellent, though short lead for the grade. However the spice is real deal, and committing to some of the more bouldery moves may make you sweat a little. Luckily the holds are surprisingly good, and the sequences are fairly straight forward. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WI
