Henning on Son of a Great Chimney Direct.


Climbs along the West Bluff Trail just south and just north of Prospect Point. Arbitrarily, this area starts left-to-right with Son of Great Chimney. Climbs around the corner to the left (Dance of Ghost Psamead, etc) are included in Big Toe.

Getting There 

At the intersection of the Fire Road and the West Bluff Trail. Climbs are right off the trail towards the Lake. As you stand on Prospect Point you look to your left at the Lost Face overhangs, and you look to your right at the Great Chimney buttress.

Climbing Season

Weather station 3.7 miles from here

Son Of Great Chimney 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c PG13  WI : Devil's Lake : ... : Great Chimney Area
Son of Great Chimney is an inspiring and intimidating line for the grade. Start on the left side of the north face. Off balance moves up the arete will lead you past pins, and into the middle crux and a few big moves. Make your way over to the right side, and finish up the right hand arete. Don't forget to enjoy the view.It is true that Pete's onsight lead in 68 was one of the greatest single moments in DL history. Not to mention the rest of the country....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI
