The Unknown Chimney

Deep chimney just to the left of Casual Sex. Can be awkward and tight. Lack of pro available.


Just to the left of the route Casual Sex.


Big bros maybe? Probably best to just TR. Bolted Anchors on top.

Climbed this last weekend. It was definitely awkward, slick, but fun nonetheless. I felt more effort went into climbing this then it took to do all 17 miles of the Narrows the next day. A great challenge and in a cool location. If you ask the shuttle drivers nicely they will drop you off right at the trailhead. The petroglyphs all around the site were really cool too. My only heads up for anyone looking to TR this is that the anchor placement is not for the feint of heart as you have to splay across the chasm of the chimney to set the anchor, which included a lot of leaning out forward over the potential 30' fall into the crack. That being said, cleaning it by topping out was much less hectic (for me at least) and getting up and over the chimney to the ledge to walk over to Casual Sex to rap off was much easier from that position.
