Henning on Son of a Great Chimney Direct.

Description 

Climbs along the West Bluff Trail just south and just north of Prospect Point. Arbitrarily, this area starts left-to-right with Son of Great Chimney. Climbs around the corner to the left (Dance of Ghost Psamead, etc) are included in Big Toe.

Getting There 

At the intersection of the Fire Road and the West Bluff Trail. Climbs are right off the trail towards the Lake. As you stand on Prospect Point you look to your left at the Lost Face overhangs, and you look to your right at the Great Chimney buttress.

The Bastard Chimney 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Wisconsin : Devil's Lake : ... : Great Chimney Area
This is the obvious long and tall splitter chimney on the backside of the "Coup D' Etat" formation. Starts off as tight ( really tight) squeeze chimney and eventually flares into a nice width. Long clean cracks like this perfect for practicing technique aren't very common at the lake. Get on this!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wisconsin
