Above the chimney the Ruckman guide shows the route traversing right to join up with Double Jam but we climbed it "straight" up (it actually trends a bit left) following the same crack system in which we started. The pro does get a bit worse this way.
The Ruckman guide says this route is "best saved for those days when one is feeling thin", but I just hopped out of the chimney and stemmed across it on the face when it had narrowed enough to have to start groveling. In other words, I didn't find this route at all strenuous.
Walk off or rappel from the bolted anchors.
The bolted anchors are easily reached from the top for top roping.
