About White Chimney:

Short but wide wedge-shaped crag. The rock is very smooth with a lot of friction required. The route has a very prominent chimney just to the left of centre, below two trees. Most of the protection is in-situ pitons, with only one or two bolts in places. Loose rock abounds at the top so a helmet is advised.
Approach: Difficult to find initially. After walking right past the temple, turn left into the trees before a concrete embankment on the right of the path. There is no discernible path for several meters, just keep to the main ridge line. When you find a small 1m boulder, you can find what appears to be a small sometimes dry creek going up and slightly to the right. Follow this up and keep going up the valley.
Approach Time: 20 min
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: The area has had problems in the past that resulted in closure of the area. See the main area description.
