Ethan Henderson following Shady Chimney. Lots of ...


Start by face climbing up around a wide crack which widens to the point where you can get inside.

Once you are inside the crack there are lots of big holds to make this chimney very easy. There is also a crack that takes regular size gear.

Near the top the chimney widens and the rock becomes smoother and less eroded. Keep chimneying through this and exit to the left. (Towards the river)


Behind and right "Throbbing Gristle"


Gear to 3" (Could use big bro's if you really, really wanted to)
Slings for the 2 chockstones.

Build Anchor on top and walk off or rap "Bobs Your Uncle"
