The route sounds super fun, especially the chimney and cave variation. Anyone got some beta for the approach and/or chimney part? Just trying to not spend the whole day looking for the route and wandering around on lichen. Feel free to pm, thanks! Toad

I just did Good Heavens yesterday. The route is awesome! follow the trail past the daddy to the next huge dihedral. The chimney variation is really interesting. There is a good size tree growing out of it. Climb the face and sling the tree. This is where it gets interesting. I am a pretty small guy and I had to take off my rack and toss it in so I could fit. It is pretty tight but really fun. Climb to the back of the room then out the top. From there you can link up with the daddy or continue up (about 5.5). Curtis Baird

That route is really fun. I don't know why the Daddy gets more attention... to me, Good Heavens is more consistent at the grade, has more variety, and more interesting things happen on it.

It's also pretty easy to find. As Curtis said, continue past the Daddy on faint trail until to come to a HUGE left-facing dihedral. It's massive. Probably 3-5 min walk from the Daddy.
