BETA PHOTO: West face of Chimney Rock. Highlighted routes are...


Start off on the right facing flake (I thought the crux was near the top of the flake)and work your way up around the right side of the thumb. Stem up behind the thumb to a belay ledge just above.


Just to the right of the middle of the West Face on a right facing flake system.


Trad double to 4"

Great first pitch!The rest is just okay. A bit grungy.
