Description

I doubt this chimney has even been climbed but who really knows. So I gave it a name -- which name comes from its unique top out experience. This is a chimney that gains the top of the 100' buttress behind (and right of) "Quantum Mechanic's Arete". It's worth doing if you're into climbing chimneys. The finish is really quite unique, requiring you to tunnel horizontally through a hole in the top of the chimney, and what is essentially the ground, emerging in the woods on the other side.

Location

The wide Chimney between "Quantum Mechanic's Arete" and "Mechanical Bull".

Protection

Standard rack. No real need for big gear since it's a standard chimney.
