OverviewThis route rivals Harding’s Chimney in quality and difficulty. The crux first pitch starts with steep broken rock (stem when possible) before entering a smooth flared chimney. Stay outside (where the chimney is wider) and occasionally reach in to place gear. This pitch protects better than Harding’s Chimney but is still only recommended for confident 5.7 leaders. The second pitch has a great mixture of 5.7 hand jams and lieback moves and ends at a notch. From here, climb the third pitch of Harding’s Chimney to the middle summit.
