BETA PHOTO: Easy to climb beginner route


This route is so perfectly "crafted" that it seems gym-like in that all the holds are just too perfect.... Basically the chimney on both side is peppered with protruding brick-like holds making what would be a tough chimney in to a walk...A good place to learn basic chimney technique....


Just left of Obscene Phone Call (5.8)....


Most top rope it, but it takes a little bit of gear, too....

Currently a Phoebe (or what some would call a little bird that flicks it's tale) nesting in the chimney... please try not to disturb her... i mentioned this to some climbers today and they didnt seem to understand... they decided to climb deep and loud in the chimney scaring the bird off her nest then complaining that the climb wasnt worth doing... i cant make anyone respect and appreciate nature but i highly recommend it...

For some good grovely fun, chimney up toward the back, then top out by squirming out the hole at the top formed by big chockstones. Don't get stuck.
