This fun, easy chimney/offwidth climbs the outside of the first crack / chimney to the right of the Big Boy / In and Out alcove. It is the chimney to the left of Bumpy. It has likely been climbed several times over the years due to its stunning visual appearance from the parking lot. In fact I may have soloed it in approach shoes about 20 years ago. Can't really remember. Senility has taken its toll. Due to the wavy nature of the rock, wide techniques are only needed in a very short section near the top.

First recorded ascent by T. Tech, B. Polovny and T. Gordon 02/2003


From the parking area this wavy chimney is obvious and located back behind overbolted rock. It is the first crack to the right of the Big Boy / In and Out alcove, and is located to the left of Bumpy.


Bring wide crack protection from #2 to #4 Big Bros or equivalent if you want protection while leading this.
