This is the steep chimney on the right end of the Gorgeous wall. Going inside the chimney is much more physical and grungy, but less technical (hence 5.5) If you hang out of the chimney on the jugs and stem between the two walls, the route is much more fun and technical (5.7), plus you can clip the bolts on the right wall (Party at Tim's) and climb it as a sport route.


Standard rack if climbing inside the chimney.

Can also be climbed on the outside using the 4 bolts to the right on "Party at Tim's" (recommended)

2 bolt anchor with rap rings at the top.

Don't assume that this is a 5.5 sport route. The bolts are on the wall perpendicular to the chimney. May 22, 2017
