The Convict is a wide chimney. Enter from the top of a rock. You may be able to reach the first bolt before starting, which would keep you from falling down into the chimney. It starts as a back and foot chimney that progressively widens to wild stemming at the top.


This is on the southwest side of The Maze.


7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Great route for beginning chimney/stemming climbers. More experienced climbers may find it overbolted, but beginners will enjoy the close proximity of the bolts. Aug 3, 2017

Great route - I thought Cosmic Quarantine was definitely more heady. I would swap the ratings. Jun 26, 2017

I'd recommend dropping down into the chimney and climbing up from there. Makes the route just that much more amazing! Definitely one of my favorite sport routes due to its sheer uniqueness. Jul 25, 2015

The bolted route left of this in the chimney is Cosmic Quarantine, 5.8+, also really nice and worth doing if you do The Convict. Sep 14, 2014
