Fun chimney!


On the far right of Mussel Rock is a 18" chimney. Climb this up up to a steep dirt slope.

If leading, climb the fun chimney with plenty of gear. At the top of the chimney, place a #4 cam under a roof and realize the fun has ended. Mantle up to the dirt ledge. Climb 25' of uncomfortable unprotected steep dirt up to a small tree you can sling for an anchor.

To top rope, hike around to the top of Mussel Rock. From there walk south on a small trail until you can go no farther. Look for two large trees a foot apart. Set the anchor from here (15' above the small tree you would sling for the lead).

#5 big bro is the only thing that protects the scary dirt top out from a terrible fall (If for some reason you actually have one also, go left at the top of the chimney)

The double tree at the top of this route fell down on top of the route some time last winter. I haven't bothered hiking to the base to look at it up close yet, but it looks like for now, the route is blocked.
