Pitch one is a steep and interesting pitch with abundant protection possibilities. Pitch two is the 5.9+ crux with some tough liebacking. A short third pitch goes to the summit.


Left side of the West Face. Refer to any guidebook covering Chimney Rock for more details.


Full rack plus some big gear... multiple #4 Camalots are ideal.

We didn't have big gear for the second pitch, so we linked to the Rappel Chimney route. The pitch that linked the two felt 5.10- to me... we went right up the steepest part of the rappel chimney itself. Jul 21, 2014
