Description

Obvious chimney system. Climb cracks to overhangs, cower under them for a second, then realize it is a lot easier than it first appears, then stem your way to easy chimney section up top. In your face at the crux! super fun!

Location

chimney crag

normal trad rack, good pro

The better option (IMO) to make this line even better is after getting thru the steep crux, stand on the geo cache ledge then lean across the chasm, plug some solid gear and step across the void. Go up and around the corner onto the face where you can easily build a gear anchor at the lip. Adds some safe excitement and keeps the grade roughly the same as well as makes a nice rope hang for people to follow. Nov 12, 2013
