Description:

Get inside that chimney and go all the way to the top!

Descent Options:

From the top, you can belay from a (somewhat small) bush-ish tree. Go right and walk along the top rim up about 100m to the obvious big rock where you will find a good rappel station.

4 out of 5 stars Chimney all the way to a great view!

I took over Nico who stopped at the Nailbox Crack belay. It is all trad, good placements, but it is always good sometimes to put 2 pieces together to make a solid point once in a while.
Not as easy at is seems. It is a great climb so, and you go to the top, so you have an awesome view!
