DescriptionBegin at the P1 belay of Pete's Farewell and head straight up from the belay for the ledge about 10 feet above the spacious belay ledge with the obvious hand crack above. An awkward and intimidating couple of moves gains the crack (crux). Above, the crack lets up a little and becomes a little blocky and then widens into a small overhang. Pull through and continue through easier terrain to the fixed anchor.
LocationStart: At the P1 belay of Pete's Farewell.
Descent: There are two bolts at the top of the route. Rappel into the chimney and either join with the 2nd rap anchor for Pete's Farewell or proceed to the ground (a rope stretcher on a 60m rope).
NOTE:DO NOT try to rappel the face of the Chimney Cliff, a 60m will end up being about 15' shy.
