The route.

This is the incredible splitter and stem corner on the north side of Chimney Rock. A mellow start leads to a ledge, where you can rest up, before pulling on some of the best crack climbing in the park. Aside from a good rest about halfway, this route is full-on sustained with finger locks, ring locks, a couple of hand jams, and a punch-it-to-the-chains type of finish.

It is worthy of the hike!


This is the obvious splitter crack and corner on the north side of the formation, right off the main trail.


A double rack of cams from tips to fists and a 2-bolt anchor.
