4 out of 5 stars chimney variation

Thought this would be a fun and easy way to get to the anchor bolts to nob job and ended up getting myself in an interesting horizontal crack under the roof you can't see from the bottom. Good hand crack but slippery feet! I'm sure someone's done it before but I thought I'd put it on the site and name it anyway just to see what other more experienced climbers thought. Have fun!
