Description [Suggest Change]

This is a straightforward and fairy well-protected chimney that's more fun than it looks and tops out on the summit of The Maze. There are good cracks inside the chimney for protection as well as a bomber #2 horizontal on the left partway up. Be forewarned: we had to tiptoe through some bird crap below an old abandoned nest halfway up the route.

To descend from the top, scramble down to the bolted anchor to climber's right of the chimney. This is the top anchor for Flake Toprope, an unprotected 10d slab problem.

Location [Suggest Change]

Mr. Pickles Learns to Swim is in the area known as Corridor 1. It's the obvious chimney system in the corner left of Turd Launcher and Sweet Nothings.

Protection [Suggest Change]

The chimney is quite well-protected as chimneys go. A single set of cams size 0.5 to 3 should be sufficient. There is a nice spot for a #4 or (better yet) a #5 halfway up. So if you have one along, you might as well use it.
