Chockstone Chimney rappel route. From the top of Upper Ruper, scramble uphill to a wide notch, then down the other side to two huge bolt hangers on the left wall of the chimney. A 100' rappel with a 60m rope takes you to the Upper Ramp; watch the ends of the rope.

To descend from here, go around the right (N) side of a short slab and traverse left on a ledge to the rappel tree for the Upper Ramp (Vertigo) rappel route. See the photo on the Redgarden Wall page for details.

The pocketed wall to the left is Body Tremors; around the corner to the right is Italian Arete.
