BETA PHOTO: Too far in....

Description 

A short squeeze chimney - harder the farther you tunnel in. At one point I had to go in, place gear, downclimb 4 feet and move out to get past a chest-wrenching bulge.


Location 

Start 4 feet to the right of Maiden in the obvious chimney formed by a larger boulder resting against the main wall. Descent is a short gully 15 feet to the right.


Protection 

Bring a #4 and a #5 Camalot. Smaller gear can be helpful in the back of the crack if you can reach it.
