Description 

A loose chimney climbs to the top of the north tooth.


Location 

Approach using the north side trail leading to Outer Space Rock Trail.


Protection 

Long slings, one standard rack with some big gear. A single #4 Camalot suffices as the climbing is easy.

Descend by using the north trail or by rapping the west face.
