Climb the chimney past 3 chockstones. There are great cracks on the right or left for pro. Exit up and right through a roof, very fun, then step left to the anchors on Crossed Fingers .


It is in between Crossed Fingers and Practice Roof.


Standard rack...#4 useful in the upper roof. Use the anchors on Crossed Fingers.

Don't mean to bust the bubble, but this has been climbed before. I for one have done it and I'm sure others have too.

This is fun, easier climb on The Quarry Wall. I recommend it.

After rapping down this route when you're done, don't pull the rope down right away. Tends to get stuck higher up in the chimney on the highest chockstone. The best and cleanest way to pull your ropes is to flip them over the bulge on the left (left wall of the chimney) all the way over to Crossed Fingers (they share an anchor). Pulling the rope from this side is very clean and easy.
