Crux is the step from the ledge above chimney to the slabs.
Around and left from Wavy Gravy, it's the only chimney. Just climb it, and you'll smile.
Good gear except for crux.

The traditional name for this route is "Dead Babies". You can thank me later...

The topo from Climbing magazine states this goes at about 5.6. I would say the chimney is an easy but fun climb utilizing the big block that forms the right side. The pro is good inside the chimney. The slabby moves to the ledge above are a bit run out and trickier with possible bad fall potential. I would grade it somewhere in between, I guess that means 5.5.
