This undulating chimney starts wide and quickly narrows before you gain a rest ledge. Another wider section is followed by the cruxy wide offwidth/squeeze chimney.

I loved this out of place route, but it is very dirty and gravelly at the top. Be careful.


This route is the obvious chimney in the middle of the Black Slabs to the left of The Seamstress.


Gear up to a BD 6. One bolt at the top, otherwise tree anchor. Helmet for the belayer!
