Description:

Starts up relatively easy east facing chimney to top of sundeck boulder. Climb the crack to the right. The crux is getting past the bulge. It is possible to clip some ratty slings that were wrapped around the chock stone to surpass this section. 2nd and 3rd pitch can be combined on the way up.

4 out of 5 stars Fun climb, good view

Did it all as one pitch, right around 200 feet. The slings are not there to clip anymore and you should feel comfortable with chimney climbing before hopping on this one. View from the top is odd as you stare out into a 360 degree metropolis.

Chimney is fun. Great Climb. Watch for Rattlers below ledge at sundeck boulder and bees all around.
