Description 

Pitch one is a steep and interesting pitch with abundant protection possibilities. Pitch two is the 5.9+ crux with some tough liebacking. A short third pitch goes to the summit.

Location 

Left side of the West Face. Refer to any guidebook covering Chimney Rock for more details.

Protection 

Full rack plus some big gear... multiple #4 Camalots are ideal.

We didn't have big gear for the second pitch, so we linked to the Rappel Chimney route. The pitch that linked the two felt 5.10- to me... we went right up the steepest part of the rappel chimney itself.
