Description

Follows a really awesome chimney feature.
P1) Starting from the ledge, follow a thin crack that arcs up and left. After maybe 20ft, blast up and right over a bulge (crux) toward a tree and another crack. Follow this to the bolted anchor.
P2) Follow the chimney up up and up! Finish up a ramp on the right and belay.
P3) Keep going up the chimney until you have to leave it on the left. From here, DO NOT go to the ledge to the left! Instead, climb up the wide, funky crack on the face. Finish up a gulley and belay (anchor bolts were missing as of Nov1 2018, but natural pro available for belay).

Location

Follow trail from parking until you reach the viewing area. From here you can head to the climbs on the right or the climbs on the left. Head to the right. Walk across the funky rock formations for about 150 feet. The rappel anchor is on a smooth rock face from the top (you don't need to climb down at all to reach it).

Protection

Well bolted. Maybe 14 draws.
