the start of the chimney
First do an easy approach pitch, shared with David. The second pitch goes up the chimney. It's easier if you don't wedge yourself in too tightly. It's also easier on a cold day when you can wear more clothing to protect your skin.
The best finish is up the 5.8 handcrack.
On the far right of weeping wall, right of Sampson. Or on the far left side of Rebolting Face.
1/2 inch to 4 inch.
Where the chimney gets wider

Followed my friend up this one. Chimney was strenuous and awkward to clean. Hand crack finish was really cool, but it felt pretty stout for 5.8. The hand crack felt like the mirror opposite of Flower of High Rank above the tree, except the Goliath crack was harder for me.
