Description 

This is a pretty fun chimney to go up. It is narrow so there is lots of squeezing and squirming if you are a bigger.

There is lots to grab onto and lots of foot holds as well.

The hardest part about the chimney is coming out of it. There is a nice sloping ledge on the left side and a few big holes, jugs, on the right side.


Protection 

This is a trad route but it also has TR anchors bolted above.

It is a nice wide crack/narrow chimney. There is a very nice crack in the very back to place gear, it is a tight squeeze though. There are few spots on the sides for bomber placement. I wouldn't worry about anyone taking a fall here though. It is a very easy route that you can nearly free climb.

This is a very easy climb you can free climb it and I practically did. I only put two pieces of gear in. Used as a warm-up route. Not strenuous at all. However the chimney is tight so there is a nice amount of squirming and wiggling up. Not many places for the best gear placement if you are a bigger person. There is a great crack in the back on the chimney but it was way to tight for me to get to to place gear.

I liked this route as a warm up. It was not challenging at all.
