W.C. Fields is an obscure, fairly tight chimney on the front of the Nautilus. The base of the route is quite vegetated, which is probably part of the reason why it doesn't attract much attention despite being in the middle of the most popular area of the Voo.

Scramble up to the start of the chimney or traverse in from the right. Once inside, a hand and fist sized crack that offers good protection soon appears on the left wall. The chimney widens near the top, which comes as a relief after wiggling around in the tight confines below. Upon topping out, you'll see Outrider's bolted anchor.


W.C. Fields is the deep chimney just left of the bolted route Outrider. It's a 1-2 minute walk left from the Friday's Recess area. To descend, rappel from the bolted anchor atop Outrider.


Cams #1 - #4 (doubles in hands/big hands) offer reasonable protection for those confident in their chimney technique. Can be sewn up with BD #6, #7 & #8.
