Nice chimney climbing.


Dark chimney to the right of the mouse routes and to the left of Thoroughfare. Climb in front of chock stones and then between them and up to ledge. Finish on left crack with jugs.


TR or ?

i agree this is defently a route to do if you are at devils lake. you get the best of both worlds, a chiminey climb and regular wall to the top.

I hear you Rhodes! This route is really good! Why is everyone afraid of chimneys? Don't bother with a rope if you lead this route.

For more excitement on the solo, go up the outside of the outer chockstone.
