Closed north of Chimney Rock. MORE INFO >>>


This climb really has no redeeming value. It goes into a dirty chimney with lots of loose rocks for a few feet before it tops out at the anchors for Drillin' Hoes. If you decide to do it, count to ten and think about it some more. Eventually, the urge will pass.


Starts at the left end of the right hand part of Boulevard wall and ends on the right hand side of the left part of Boulevard wall.
