This is the obvious chimney to the right of What's Wrong With Parents Today. If you're there & have a desire for one more route, this can be interesting. It is somewhat reminiscent of the chimney pitch of Orange Julius with a bit of the chimney pitches of Bowels of the Owls & Casual Route.

If this is your FA, please accept our apologies.

Start up the cleft, pro is deep in the back for the 1st half of the chimney. Above, you can use the crack behind, but the face holds within get better. Don't fall in there, the rock is rough. There are still a few creaking holds in there. Then, you get the funky, less-protected, awkward, RFD above. The crux is high, near the top. Rap off bolts on What's Wrong With Parents Today.

We recommend you don't bring a nice shirt/jacket for this one.


This is on the right side of the Left Side, just right of What's Wrong With Parents Today.


Cams to #4 Camalot, wires. You may be able to use a #4 Big Bro.


Fun, but bit persnickety regarding gear. Lower chimney climbs at 5.5ish and is easy to protect. Above the chimney the gear is there, but you may want to have some Totems to protect the crux. We had an old book and didn't know its PG13- either that or my partner likes to see me shake in my boots I didn't have the right gear, and let's just say, moms were probably covering their children's ears over at the Riveria from my expletives. Egads! Yet another spanking from a BC trad 5.9! 2 days ago
