Named for the big split in the middle of the rock that forms the route Chim-Chiminey. All the routes on this formation are tightly bolted single pitch sport routes with easy access on and off the rock, making this area a good spot to stop and warm up, or a place to start learning the ropes of leading and further develop your skills and confidence.

Getting There
