International Chimney is a classic route that shouldn't be missed. Start on the west side of Spire Three.
Pitch 1 (4th Class): climbs up an easy chimney between Obelisk and Spire Three. Continue this until at the base of the International Chimney.
Pitch 2 (5.6): Climbs up the obvious chimney/gully feature. Climb the large crystals to a belay at the top of the flake. Bolted Anchor.
Pitch 3 (5.7): From the belay traverse further right through a small "hallway" to its end and stem up to reach the step across to the obvious off-width (crux). After off-width continue up low angled slab to a bolted anchor.
Decent: 2 double rope rappels to ground. Rappel to the top of pitch 2 anchors in chimney for first rappel.
