Description:

a so-so easy chimney-ish climb. nothing worth talking about, but an easy way to get up to set TR's for Grant's Crack and the tough 5.10's to its right. Descent: A rappel tree is up and right of Grants crack. You cannot rappel the route- bolts shown in Supertopo are NOT there. Note: This route is shown in the Yosemite top-rope guidebook as a fourth-class approach to set top-ropes. It is not 4th class and a fall could be dangerous.

2 out of 5 stars Chimney?

More of a 'lie on your back and slide your way up while underneath another rock' than a chimney.
