This is a pretty good climb. Definately worth doing if you're at "The Columns." Climb the chimney by stemming the entire way up (requires a little more strength), or use a combination of face climbing and crack skills. Crux is near the top, maybe 3/4 of the way up. Gets a little wet and dirty during the rainy season, but other than that, it's usually good.
Climb the obvious chimney immediately to the right of the main buttress.
Can be done Trad or TR. Chain anchors at top. Small to medium stoppers and cams should be fine. A note about gear placements; they are a little trickier than it looks from the ground.
