Description

Fun stemming chimney with great protection. Good for learning stemming technique.

Location

After crawling under the Zanzibar boulder, continue forward with the Sci-Fi wall on your left. You will reach a jumble of boulders. Climb under (easier if you are small) or over them while turning left. Chimney Crack is the obvious crack in the corridor.

Protection

Medium cams for the climb, #4 C4 up top if you don't want to run it out (its easy terrain however). Smaller stuff for an anchor if you desire one. No fixed anchors. Somewhat long hike off (you may wish to bring approach shoes to get down).

Kind of an ackward start, but a fun interesting route that allows the climber to stem out in the chimney when you get a bit higher in the crack. I set an anchor right at the top of the crack using BD 0.75 & 1 (or something about that size) instead of jacking around with the wide horizontals that surround the top as I've known some to do. You can decend quickly with an ackward roll/crawl through the gap to the climbers right from the top. Sep 18, 2014
