Description 

This short, deep chimney is one of the cleanest (not clean, it IS a chimney) chimneys I've ever climbed. By cleanest I mean the relatively small amount of crud left on clothing, in the eyes, net blood lost, etc.

Climb up from wherever you choose in the chimney, But climbing is shorter and less exposed deep in the chimney. There's also protection options in a crack system to the left. I topped out behind a moderate sized chockstone, though it was through a space that many probably will not fit.


Location 

The prominent deep chimney on the middle-right side of The Space Wall.

Walk off the top ( I didn't find a great way, and it took a while) either to the left or right.


Protection 

1/2" - 2" cams, and a large sling for the chockstone at the top.

There are no anchors at the top, though with some mild inconveniences, you could place a top rope using cams or slings up top.
