Emerging from reconciliation
Climb the big chimney just to the left of Extreme Unction. Walk around the first big wall of the Watchtower back into the corner. You can stay out on the face or wedge yourself way into the chimney.
I top-roped this route from the top of Extreme Unction. It's a great chimney with lots of cracks and seams for trad pro as well.
Starting the lead.

Going through the hole is the crux.
Not a butt shot.
Just passed the crux.

Not a bad chimney. I went behind the chockstone. Oh, and it protects very well.

This is a great first chimney climb. Its easy and pretty fun if you haven't every done a chimney before. You can definitely TR of the extreme unction anchors, but expect a lot of rope drag. Also lowering some one on belay back behind the chock stone at the start is interesting, but not to bad.

This is a great chimney climb with great protection and awesome views from above. Very Awkward start. Protect it as best you can before you start climbing.

I had a blast on this chimney. And that's coming from a a non-chimney lover. Give it a go! It's pretty easy.
