Description

Great hidden chimney past "the chalkboard" walls. This climb is hidden in the cave along the blue/yellow trail (not the terror dome). Slab for the first 15' then enter and work the chimney up past the small roof on the left to the top. For trad, there are some options for gear to protect (PG-13). Nice and cool on a hot day. Very awkward and alot of fun.

Location

Go past the chalkboard and instead of following the trail stay close to the wall through a cave-like path. Fun. Pretty obvious chimney. The left face is covered in lichen.

Protection

No bolts, decent boulders to anchor to at top. You can sling around the large boulder and enter the top of the chimney to gain access to some crack options to build an anchor. Also with a long anchor rope there is a flake-like boulder about 20' back towards the upper trail that you can sling for added protection.

Quite enjoyable if you like chimneys. Of course if you don't... Gear is OK - borrow your partner's very small cams. It's amazing how many people hop over this on their way to setting up Skink et al, yet no one ever climbs it. It's not that bad. If you like chimneys. Oct 23, 2011
