Description:

Start below a rectangular roof, climb a short corner, undercling out good holds to a juggy layback, pulling the roof. Climb to a table-sized ledge for the first belay. From there, it's easier for a while up to the little alcove (don't climb in there). Pull a roof and layback the great, easier crack. Finish up to the belay chains of Chimney Route. It is possible to top out past here...just work your way to the top through the cave.

Descent Options:

Double rope rappel from the chains. Or multiple single rope rappels from the top with two rappel stations along the way -- manky old slings on horn/flakes.
