For more details on the closure/access in this area of Cimarron Canyon, see this Forum

Better (and legal) summertime sport cragging near Taos can be found at Comales Canyon, and at Red River. Please, go there instead.

Besides, I think the name is lame.

The reason for the name is due to attempting climbing out the chimney crack to the left and getting stuck with an all point off rest and hips being wedged into the crack and then retreating to finish out at the chain anchors to the right, thus aborting the original plan.
