|East Face/Chimney Rock
Starting from the large ledge on the east face this route is gently overhanging. Starting as thin fingers to thin hands the route stops at the end of the crack.
Gear small to med.

Stunning line. Burly and sustained. Sharp down low, but quality. Can protect it entirely with cams. The anchor is three quarter-inchers with tat, not chains as the current guide describes.

McBirney committed suicide last summer (2009). I don't know why or all the details but definitely a bummer. He was why I got into climbing, and indirectly responsible for all the new routes around the Spokane area. He actually loaned me his drill once. Russ Shultz and I used it to rebolt Hair of the Dog at Dishman. RIP Martin
