The next chimney to the right of Honey Badger. It's the second one you hop over as you walk out to the bolts atop Skink. Not as squeezy as Honey Badger, so it should appeal to more folks.


While the chimney extends to ground level (the route is named for the really neat cave at the base at the base of the cliff here; check it out), you really need to start on the big ledge 20 ft off the ground. Scramble up a bit in the cleft just left of the large black birch tree, then walk right on the large ledge behind the tree. You can't miss the chimney.


A pair of #3 Camalot size cams will suffice if you want to build a TR anchor (a horizontal takes gear too if you want a third piece). Gear in the chimney is nothing out of the ordinary. You could place a #4 BigBro if you had one but it's not necessary. The friction in there is excellent and the chimney moves are very secure.
