Inside the chimney of Octopus Tag

Description 

Tons o fun the entire way.

This route starts off as an awkward flake with a few face holds to a decent sized ledge. From there, enter the chimney to experience secure climbing that will leave you smiling the whole way. Exit the chimney and step onto a ledge, soaking in the view. From here, climb a short flake to the anchors. Beware of the pricker bush on the ledge.

Location 

Right of "Crack the Whip", just look for the big chimney!

Protection 

Nuts and cams, the biggest cam I used was #3 camalot. This route protects very easily. Bolted anchors at the top.
