Immediately right of The Layback is a wide chimney. K-1 ascends a flake on the right side of the chimney. When the flake ends, improvise straight up. It's possible but easier and less aesthetic to stem the chimney behind you.


Long (20+ feet) slings are recommended to sling the large boulder above this route. Setting up the anchor involves some exposed class 3 scrambling across the chimney.
