This climbs the big chimney to the right of the classic Extreme Unction. Not bad for a chimney, with the exit move being the so-called crux. A good approach to the top.
Medium to large gear, and some slings.

Totally sandbagged! But in all seriousness it's actually a fun climb for a chimney. Crux is down low, getting into the narrower part. Just grab and haul. Anchors on the boulder up top are horribly placed, bring some extra long slings to extend it out.
