This line is just left of George's Buttress on the left side of Chimney Rock. It starts with the crux, 2 bolts worth of thin edging on clean rock. Then it pulls a roof and climbs past horizontals to the top (5.9). This is a very good climb.

Sorry, the route is just RIGHT of George's Buttress (not left). It is just left of Mistaken Identity.

Very very fun. Super sharp crimpy start to easier finish.

Fun, crimpy climbing is too short.

30-40 feet of fun, thin face to more moderate climbing above. This barely makes it to two stars in my book, but I can understand why some folks might like it more.
