Description

Though it didn't jump out at me as a route the first 20 times I looked at it, I recently scrambled in to this chimney and found myself pleasantly surprised. A few hidden holds on the left wall drew me up the beginning of the chimney over varying rock. when things run out on one wall you can turn around (bright eyes) and find what you need. Over all I find this little hidden climb to be so much fun! Another well protected easy climb that will entertain everyone and teach the beginner climber new techniques. In this case the ways of the chimney

Start on a set of stone steps. Climb a short slab to get to the chimney. Reach across to the left wall to make the first clip. Scamper up to the next stance for another clip (all bolts on the left wall). Tunnel deeper in to the chimney on good feet, face the left wall and chimney up to the third bolt. Navigate some interesting 3D climbing past the last 2 bolts and eventually step across the void and up to the anchor.  

Location

The chimney on the far far right of Prudential just past the gully of Cranky Pants 5.5. Look for the stone steps just off the trail.

Protection

5 bolts to anchor
