BETA PHOTO: Follow the rope straight up.


One of the most sustained squeeze chimneys to be had at Devils Lake. Move up the chimney without getting stuck until you reach some chockstones, do an exposed move out and around the chockstones, and top out.


This is the obvious dark chimney located between Zig Zag and Sometime Crack Right Side.


Big Bros or free solo.

Tom, I'm just parroting the guidebook grade here. I'll agree this thing took more effort than most 5.6's I've done recently, though, especially considering I got stuck for a few minutes while passing the chockstones. You've done a lot more chimneys than me, what would you say it felt like?
