DescriptionWith its traversing moves and the old piton that gives the route its name, Pin Chimney is a little reminiscent of Gunks climbing. The rock is great quality, the protection is good and the exposure rivals that of the neighboring Comfortably Numb. One of the nicer moderate trad routes at Sand Rock.
Starting on a flat boulder below a large cave, work your way up the right side of the cave to a ledge above. Note: don't count on getting any protection in before gaining the ledge. Traverse left and up to an obvious chimney, noting an old pin which you may or may not decide to clip. Climb the well-protected chimney to the top.
