(a) Hike down from Chapel Pond; very long, but allows you to attempt other climbs in the canyon.
(b) Park at Roaring Brook Falls. Walk up Route 73 (towards Chapel Pond) to the end of the guard rail on the south side of the road. Jump the guard rail at its very end and walk directly perpendicular from the guardrail over the bump of hill in front of you. This brings you to the swamp. The swamp is AMR property, so take a hard left when you hit the swamp and follow its edge all the way to the end. Do NOT go up the canyon when you get to the end of the swamp. Instead, look to the south side wall of the canyon at this point....at the steep incline. You should barely be able to see the chimney and/or buttress it resides inside. This is a very short walk altogether. See the Joe Heinz's pictures posted in this climb's photo section......one shows the view from the swamp up at the climb's base (with arrows pointing at the climb).....the other shows the view from the base of the climb down at the swamp's end (for perspective).
