Description

Awesome chimney splitting the formation. 3rd class scrambling to get up into it. About half way up the climber is totally inside the rock. The top is probably the crux with a few alternate finishes that probably go at 5.9 and 5.10+. Really fun climb. To descend walk climbers right untill you see a trail. Take this trail all the way down to the base. Another option is scrambling 4th class when the trail breaks off. It is obvious.

Protection

Regular rack .5-4 and a set of stoppers

Super grungy chimney. Your second will get a steady deluge of lichen and dirt as you thread your way through. Easily done in two pitches. Cool climb if you're on lead -- the rock swallows you up but eventually you escape. Follow the crack direct to the top for a harder 5.9 finish, or traverse climber's left for an easier top out.
