Description 

If you like tight squeeze chimneys then this one is for you.
Find your way up to a slung chockstone (with a bail biner) at the base of the obvious chimney. Make an awkward move to get established in the chimney and then somehow worm your way up. Not a lot of pro for the first 15-20' but you are in there so tight it would be hard to fall out. I'd recommend NOT wearing a helmet - the chimney is so tight that I couldn't turn my head around and had to remove it.
Definitely a physical 5.8!

Location 

The route starts just right of A Pitch in Time

Protection 

SR to 3" is fine....there are a few slung chockstones to clip. Tree anchor.
