Description 

Grunt your way up the chimney past two bolts, and step left onto the ramp for some easy moves. Follow the left line of bolts up the middle of the face above on perfect stone and superb climbing. You may not agree with my quality rating if you hate chimneys - but the upper wall is well worth the grovel at the bottom. It shares the start and anchors with a variation a few feet to the right.

Location 

This is 30' right of where the approach trail meets cliff. Start in the chimney immediately left of Chickamauga.

Protection 

8 or 9 bolts, 2 BA.
