Description 

This short climb is on the far right side of the southwest face.
On the far right of the face are two parallel chimneys that start about two thirds of the way up the rock. The left chimney has a chockstone and a corner leading up to it. This is the route. Make an entry move up to a small ledge. Climb up the corner crack, passing horizontal cracks, to the alcove beneath the chimney. Continue up the chimney. The chockstone is kinda' scary, it appears to be barely hanging there. I pushed on it and it didn't move, but I didn't use it or step on the top of it.
Walk off the backside.
