This is a fun, little jaunt up an intimidating chimney with a lot of chockstones above your head.

P1, 2, and 3 can be broken up as you feel comfortable. I think you can do this climb as 2 huge pitches.

This is the obvious chimney on the north tooth, tucked behind a tree.

Climb the chimney using cracks on the wall and slinging chocks for protection. Continue to the summit.

Descent: walk off to the north and wrap around the base of the west face.


Double rack of cams, triple length runners.

There is protection available for the entire climb.

I vote to name this the Treasure Chimney, last time we climbed it we found some great booty, lockers, steripen, leathermen, firstaid kit.... Lots of bird crap in the middle though. Jun 9, 2016
