When viewed from above, the chimney runs about 100ft or so from East to West, with several blocks and one large flake spanning its width near the center. As far as technique and difficulty go, don't count on this being the crux of your trip. But it might be a highlight regardless. Back-foot and stem from bottom to top, pausing frequently to take in the view and revel in the shaded perfection of this wild feature.
The most obvious line, to the right of the flake, has surely been climbed before. This line is about 75ft in length.
To the left of the flake, the chimney gets deeper as the hillside gradually drops away. Lichen and hanging flakes (some flexing up to 4 inches off the wall) covered much of the upper 30ft of this section. About 20sf of guillotines were removed by hand, but some remaining sections will probably flex a little bit under full pressure. At 90ft, this way up seemed more fun to me, albeit requiring nearly identical movement to the other side. Wearing a helmet might be a good idea.
If access to the base is needed, tunnel through a tree to the right of the chasm, then squeeze through a smallish gap between two boulders. Easy scrambling will take you to the base from here.
