Chester's Chimney is an offwidth chimney about 25 ft tall near the northwest (lower) end of the Birthday Rocks formation. It isn't listed in Swartlig's book, but it is a decent climb for practicing offwidth (not much of this at Devil's Lake). To climb, scrape your way up by any means possible. To make it a true offwidth you should avoid using any holds on the face.
