BETA PHOTO: Beginner's Chimney


Climb the obvious chimney to the right of Broken Boulders. Not as good for the grade as Broken Boulders but still fun. I should give it one more star because the climbers in the photo are clearly having a good time.


The route is three routes to the right of Broken Boulders. Coming in from the west walk along the base passing an outside corner (Poison Ivy 5.5). Here the base becomes a ledge, walk along this slightly exposed ledge to the next outside corner (5.7 corner). Pass Broken Boulders and look for the obvious chimney to the right. Walk off to the left, head left and down before you reach the Monster Wall.


Light rack, cracks on top to build an anchor. Break out your big stuff if you want.
