This climb is located near the middle of Chimney Rock (perhaps 75 feet right of Single Lens Reflex). The first pitch is the attraction. Climb a steep, slightly flaring finger crack. The rock is very high quality. Near the top of the crack, it is possible to bust out right to face holds or finish up the crack (looks harder although I haven't tried this option). Flaring jams and standard Mt. Lemmon funk make the climbing harder and more off-balance than it looks. Belay at the ledge. Many routes go to the top. An interesting option is the second pitch of Gripping Space (5.10). It climbs out the steep bulge on big holds with slings for protection. Many descents options are possible.
