Description 

On the opposite side of the Top Rope Wall is an obvious chimney that goes up into what appears to be a Rhododendron forest. Not to fear there is a trail from the top back to where the gully is.

Head up the right angling chimney and get your friction on. The slight amount of moss/lichen growing on the side your feet use makes for some less then positive feeling footwork. Top out and use a couple of Rhodo's as an anchor for your 2nd. The way the top out is doesn't really lend itself for setting up a TR unless you get creative.

The actual moves may be easier than 5.7, but not with the moss.....

Protection 

Standard rack. No fixed anchors, use Rhodo's
