When closed, the closures include the named rock formations and the areas surrounding the base of the formation. This includes all climbing routes, outcroppings, cliffs, faces, ascent and descent routes, and climber's access trails to the formation.
Areas not listed are presumed to be open. These closures will be lifted or extended as conditions dictate.

Climb easy chimneys to the right and uphill of Southeast Pillar's start. Look for the amazing hanging chimney above.
Rope up on a big ledge and climb into an overhanging crack to gain the chimney proper. The inside of the chimney is (Wolf's Tooth style) with small to midrange cams and nuts for pro. This is very tight squeeze through here and even skinny Michael thought is was tight. So beware.
After you extract yourself from the chimney there is a nice ledge to belay from. It's possible to rap from here or continue up P.2 of Southeast Pillar; another chimney.
