Long ignored, but deserving more attention. The chimney can be climbed mostly as a straight in crack. The crux is some steep face climbing getting into the chimney.When I was on this some very large rocks peeled off near the start. It is cleaner now, but requires some thin insecure face moves that are very hard to protect. There is a shallow cam placement on the left side but the rock is soft there. I was considering adding a bolt. If you climb this let me know if you think it is needed....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
