BETA PHOTO: Looking up at the Chimney corner.


Though the "chimney" is off-width, the highly-featured corner in which it resides means that you won't really need any off-width technique to climb it. A pleasant, albeit short, climb.


Walk up to a dirt-covered ledge in the corner between Cathedral Wall and Never Never Land.


We toproped it, so I'm not 100% on the pro. The chimney itself would big (fist and up) gear. The faces in this area tend to be cut with horizontals, so you may get some tiny stuff in there. Natural anchors for toproping.

Pro stinks on the face. Get ready for some run out sections. You will need huge gear in the crack.

Wouldn't bother leading it. Really good climb (5.7 ish?) about 10' right of the chimney following a right-facing roof/alcove. Good to do while in the area.
