Description:

An exhilarating route up the big chimney on the south side of The Big Boulder. Start up the face immediately right of the bottom of the chimney; strenuous climbing on mini overlaps and side-pulls on the edge of the chimney takes you past 3 clips (5.9). Then fun stemming, face climbing, and chimney moves take you to the top of the chimney - impressive exposure in a fine position (5.7-5.8). A short and easy low-angle face takes you to the anchor.

Descent Options:

Rap (60 m single rope) or continue to the top of the boulder and descend the loose 4th class scramble on the north side.

4 out of 5 stars Nice crack

Don't get yourself wedged in there even though it's so tempting. Got my rope stuck for the first time so I had to climb it twice to retrieve it.
