Description:

Access is from prow ledge. Layback the sustained flake then crack switch right to squeeze chimney protected by one bolt.

Descent Options:

Rap to prow ledge. We were able to do it with ease with a 70 meter. A 60 would be cutting it close, but maybe doable.

4 out of 5 stars Large and in charge

We top roped this route from the chain anchors on the last pitch of Cooper Hiser. The layback starts at 4 inches and only gets wider. You could probably sneak some small pro in on a few horizontals and small cracks but it would be sparse. The squeeze up top is physical but secure. Very unique for Chimney Rock. Would be a bold lead.
