Narrow chimney complete with a short and branchless tree sticking out of it.

The route continues for several more pitches and ends on the upper tier near Cat Burgler.
2nd pitch : highly vegetated ramps going right from the bush below Catapult to the end of slabs
Pitch 3: there is a down climb to access a right facing corner arching up right and below the big roof. Nice 5.6 laybacks. and some great hand cracks.
Continue following path of least resistance, more ramps, cracks.

Interesting note: the little tree in the chimney existed in 1960 says Fred Beckey.
