Checking out the chimney route.


This is the obvious chimney system splitting the right side of the Second Wind Wall. It is a unique feature which cranks out cold air, making it an ideal spot on a hot day and a convenient beverage cooler. You can also bring a headlamp with and wriggle down the slot for a ways for some spelunking fun.
The lower 1/2 of the pitch ascends the fun featured chimney at 5.7. The upper 1/2 exits out of the chimney and up a sporty, tenuous slab. Anchors will probably be added atop the chimney portion soon, as most people bail from there anyway and the chimney is by far the best portion of the climb.


Starts up the obvious large chimney system clipping bolts on the left-hand wall.


10 or so bolts (?) to chains. Two single rope raps from the anchors atop Second Wind.

From the upper anchors, a single 60M rope will just make it to the base of the climb.
