|Square Ledge (Pinkham Notch)
Right of Thriller Arete, One will find an obvious chimney that slowly constricts all the way to the top. Scramble up to the base where face holds and a handcrack on the left provide easy climbing to the 5.5 crux near the top. Though slightly slabby in nature, The Chimney will bestow you with a hefty payload of positive feet and hands. Makes for a great first trad lead- will take pretty much any protection all the way to the top.
The obvious chimney system in the upper right portion of the crag.
Medium to large cams and nuts- standard rack.

Fun! Very easy til the top of the route. Easily protected exit.

Very easy. I would even put this at 5.2 or 5.3. Kind of a letdown in that sense, but an interesting rock feature and worth doing if you are there.
