The East Face of Chimera as seen from the start.
This is the only route we did on this crag while wandering around Chimera, Pegasus, Medusa, and the other mythological crags of the area. Lost In Lycia climbs the East Face of the Chimera, which is uniform and narrow enough so as to not have too many distinct features. While nothing about this route stands out as particularly great, there are no serious detractors from this rather average Flatiron slab.
Descend by heading off to the West to the ground, then back around to the North side to be base of the crag. As you descend, the lower half of Medusa will be just to the north.
This is the sole route we did on Chimera, as the East face is small and uniform. It goes up he narrow East face without much room to wander.
Standard light rack.
