Climb a large flaring chimney. Pull up on a hanging block and climb tight moves to the top.This climb offers nice jams but may feel harder than the grade depending on your approach.


Left side of 2nd tier, Just right of My 3 Friends.


Standard Rack, you might want a #4.

Hey Liam,
Based on your star rating I don't think you have climbed many chimneys. This route is something very different from the typical face climbing in NB and requires true chimney and off-width technique. I would recommend wearing pants and shirt.
