Number 2 in the wide crack intro course (see Easy Jam), Baldwin's Chimney is a noticeable jump up in difficulty, primarily due to the length of the route. At the left end of the Parabolic Slab, on the NW side of the crag, find this little beauty. Use all the considerations in the Easy Jam description, and proceed with confidence. Consider neoprene kneepads to lessen the pain- you can really get into a knee-foot stance so much easier if you are not wincing every time you weight your knees. Focus on securing your lower body in the crack, then pushing off your legs to advance to the next stance. The descent succumbs to moderate exploration.
