This great route provides the second easiest line to Chimney Rock's summit. You only briefly climb the actual "rappel chimney".

p1) easy 4th/5th climbing turns into awkward climbing as you near the belay ledge above a large right facing corner (2 wide cracks up the left side of the corner help identify the target ledge). Belay at the large ledge just right of a rappel station.

p2-3) the routes crux, is a nice short crack leaving the belay ledge leading to a bulge. Pull through the bulge or step right at the bulge for an easy exit. Belay at the 2-bolt anchor just 30' above or continue by stepping right into a great open book feature. Follow the open book, with great pro opportunities to its end. Move left into the belay/rappel notch. Belay here, then a short pitch leads to the summit.


lookers left of the standard route, the general line climbs just right of the large right facing corner system which dominates the west faces left side


small rack to 2 inches, several slings
