Description:

Inside the Inside passage. To reach, enter the inside passage from Fingernails and follow for 30 feet untill you see a dead end passage. This is the Khazad Dum chimney. the guidebook says, "The Inside Passage tunnels through the formation to Dinkum Gully. It passes beneath a neglected chimney climb bellow the Khazad Arete" -15 feet up you get your first pieces, small cams in an undercling crack -above that you get a #6 and a #4 big bro (recomended) -when you reach the small ledge, place your 3" and pull the mantle. -bolts are awkwardly to the left (share bolts with Chaimberlin's Chimney)

Descent Options:

walkoff/rap

3 out of 5 stars Short but sweet

Tried to keep just to the arete, which I didn't see listed as a separate route. The chimney is fun on both sides of the arete.
