Description 

This fissure appears grungy and uninviting from afar. However, once you get on it, you'll find better climbing and probably the most moderate climbing at the crag.

Chimney the obvious fissure between Honey Pot and Jug Haul. Use the left wall for terrific hand holds. Occasionally, you will use the right wall for stems or back steps. About 3/5's the way up, you may reach in deep into the chimney and find right hand sidepull under the deep, black lichen. Finish up to the anchors for Honey Pot to the left (better) or Jug Haul to the right.

This fissure needs a better cleaning than bare hands can do in spots; however, it's likely that moisture will replenish the vegetation quickly.

Location 

This is the obvious fissure between Honey Pot and Jug Haul.

Protection 

Slings, #4 Bigbros, 2 x 4s, creativity...or better just TR it.
