Description

Start in the obvious chimney where the Carion Pillar meets the main wall. After approximately 12 feet, a crack (visible from start) provides the first piece of protection. Two ledges interrupt the continuous chimney and provide the cruxes of the route with the one requiring a less than sexy belly flop. Unlike most chimneys, this route allows gear every 10-12 feet. For some this may feel PG rated as there is ground fall potential at the start and after one of the ledges however all the cruxes are decently protected. Chains are located at the final roof at the end of the chimney and allows for easy topropping. This is a good summer respite for desert chimney addicts when the red desert is too hot or a good practice route for the burgeoning chimney leader.

Location

Start in the obvious chimney where the Carion Pillar meets the main wall.

Protection

See image below. You could get by with doubles from BD 0.4 - 2, single of BD 3, and medium stoppers.
