Use the same start as V-Chimney, but stay right on the short, overhanging, blocky section that leads to a sizable ledge. You can also climb the vertical, left-facing section (at the start of the v-shaped chimney feature) to get to the ledge; this option offers better protection. From the ledge, tackle the widening crack that finishes as an off-width. There is a wedged flake within the middle section of the crack that offers some relief for one-handed gear placement. Exiting the off-width crack (i.e., the topout) is the crux.


This ascends the upper, off-width crack at the inside corner to the (climber's) right of the distinguishable V-Chimney route.


Toprope from a tree anchor or protect with large gear (BD #5 for crux).

This is a pretty desperate & heady lead for the grade (with ledgefall potential).
