Description 

Chimney Top Rock is probably the most recognizable geologic feature in the Red River Gorge. Of course, if you were to ask many die hard sport climbers you might get a few scratched heads.

Chimney Top is a monolithic pillar at the tip of the ridge that is separated from the main cliff by a 3-5 foot chimney. The chimney itself is a 150' route (though closed) called Chimney's Chimney which dates back to the earliest climbing days of the RRG.
