This is the large chimney that the approach trail comes out in front of at the Simpsons/Bovine wall. Go up chunky corner and work up the short slab into the chimney. Work up the chimney and out to a block then around and to the top.
Trees for anchors, no bolts.

The gear in the chimney is not great. Before you get to the roof, you can get a decent #0 purple TCU in the right wall.
you can get good cams in the roof but it has a hollow sound. I always put on in each side of the big detached block that forms the roof before I exit.
Fun route to TR but a bit spooky for a 5.7 leader.

+1 on Paul's comments, a #4 cam is very comforting going around the block exiting the chimney section. Great climb and though the gear is not all perfect there is a lot more of it than I was expecting and the climbing is very secure. A great lead!
