Pitch 1: Worm your way up the squeeze chimney in the corner, using ledgy holds when they are available. There is very little pro, but the climbing is secure and simple. Pop out onto a ledge and build a belay to bring your partner up. (5.8, 30ft)Pitch 2: To the right of the obvious offwidth, squeeze into a narrow corridor between the wall and a large strangely shaped flake that tapers fantastically to a point at its top.

Super Chimney is the big flake visible to the left (east & higher) than the Moab Rim Tower. (About half an hour up the Moab Rim Jeep Trail, chimney feature, on the uphill side). One set of cams gets you through, and a few draws for the pins higher up. Paul R. and Jimmie D. established this gem initiall as A2 and most of the same 5.10. After a superfun TR, Jimmie, Hellen and Billy R. removed the extra pitons and this now leads as one of the best single pitches on the river! Belay at the top. Pretty exciting at the top, but probably not R.
