This is a chimney with three routes on the inside of the Manual Transmission Crag. It’s not a true climb itself but warrants its own description. I’ve approached it from the back (north) side onto the platform, then climbed up the easy wide slot (Unkn 3) and rappelled into the chasm from a natural gear anchor. Leaving a fixed line is prudent just in case.

It may be possible to squeeze and chimney in from the south side but with complications and unpleasantries.

From the top of the chasm, you can get off by rapping from anchors either to the N or the S.


It is inside Mechanical Transmission Crag.


Anchor for rappel is #0.4 to # 1 Camalots.
