Alternate 1st pitch that many also prefer goes up the wall on the left side. Go far enough left that it's closer to scrambling. I've done the version in the picture as well and find that even though it's generally easy there are more places with bad fall zones and less than great gear to protect, exposing one to pendulum falls into the chimney.
