Begin 30 feet uphill to the right of 'Thinsignificance' at the base of an enormous, never-ending, lichenous chimney. A few face moves enables you be engulfed by the massive chimney. Continue up, grinding your clothes/skin on rough rock for 350 feet to reach the ridge.

Descend by downclimbing the easier (5.1) chimney next to 'Green Chimney' or by scrambling off north.


Standard rack. Wide gear is useful but not necessary. Long pants.


Having just done the thin "crack" to the right, I can't see how this chimney is longer than 200 feet. Nov 21, 2017
