How would Santa escape The Hole In The Waltz? Through the chimney of course! Climb the obvious chimney on the west side of the hole with some help from some pinches and jams on the inside. Mantle out the top and clip the anchors for the win. Gets it's R rating from the large amount of loose rock still in the back of the chimney. Belayers, wear a helmet please.


On the west side of the hole.


Standard rack. Bolted anchors.
