Chockstone Chimney rappel route.  From the top of Upper Ruper, scramble uphill to a wide notch, then down the other side to two huge bolt hangers on the left wall of the chimney.  A 100' rappel with a 60m rope takes you to the Upper Ramp; watch the ends of the rope.<br>
<br>
To descend from here, go around the right (N) side of a short slab and traverse left on a ledge to the rappel tree for the Upper Ramp (Vertigo) rappel route.  See the photo on the Redgarden Wall page for details.<br>

The pocketed wall to the left is Body Tremors; around the corner to the right is Italian Arete.
