The prominent chimney on the Beanstalk wall. The chimney was formed by a vein of weaker blocky rock, basalt, I think, which forms the back of the chimney. Climb the chimney until you can see through the 'box' to the upper section. You may want to pass the rack through ahead of you so you don't get jammed! Squeeze through the box and continue to the top via more chimney, crack, and some bear hugging moves on the final block.
When you hike up the trail to the Beanstalk wall, the chimney is right in front of you when the trail meets the wall.
All trad gear to two bolted ring anchors. I used one large nut (for the first piece) and some of one set of cams to a #3 (for one of last pieces). All the gear goes in the granite- don't bother to place any in the basalt. When you rappel, toss the rope to climbers' right so that it doesn't get stuck in the cracks when you pull it. **yes, there is still some loose rock, it's an adventure climb!
