This irresistible route makes a great introduction to chimney climbing and a great place to practice a variety of chimney climbing techniques. Starts as an offwidth/squeeze chimney and gradually widens until a stem or body bridge technique must be used near the top.
Just inside the Sandy Corridor on the right. This chimney separates the first rock formation from the larger formation further inside the corridor. Easy walk-off to the right leads down to the mouth of the corridor.
There are 2 bolts at the top of the formation but you will need an extra rope or a lot of webbing (maybe 30'?) to get a top rope set up in the right place. There is also a 3"-4" pod above the climb that might be useful as a directional.

It's just an opinion Karl, nothing is stopping you from voting with your own opinion. I personally seek the wide :)

How would you possibly protect this thing? I had a 4 big bro and only could use it at the lower section. Also the anchors were in a horrible spot. Not even worth doing.
