3 out of 5 stars Nice and cool

It was hot out, and we enjoyed hanging out and feeling the cool breeze get pumped through the chimney. Short but fun, as is the arete. Also, there is a fun boulder problem back on the other side of the chimney as well.

4 out of 5 stars too short

fun short route, can easily be led with a #3 and/or 4 big bro.
i used #9 valley giant and the #4 big bro but you really don't need any protection towards the top.

or for a much easier variation climb deeper in the chimney where its much wider.
