At the beginning of the second pitch you can belly crawl back into the chimney till you get to a splitter. From here you can chimney up with decent protection the whole way up, be sure to bring lots of nuts, and small cams. The first move is tight but the rest of the climb is a comfortable fun chimney.

I was able to get a .3 camalot about 15 feet up on the 2nd pitch. After that its about 50 feet to the next placement. Once you reach the bombay chimney, head West (into the chimney). About 20-30 feet from the mouth of the chimney a crack splits the south wall. I was able to place sever pieces here, which protect the final moves to the summit.
