Description:

From the RRG online guide: Begin by climbing Day Dreaming (50 feet left of Foxfire is an obvious black dihedral. Climb the deceptively difficult handcrack to a ledge - 5.9+), then continue up through two more pitches of great climbing via the following pitches: Dustin Stephens' description: "pitch 2: 5.10, 80'. Climb the beautiful overhanging crack trending left through two roofs on good holds. Watch for a little loose rock at the first roof (5.8+), then crank over the second roof and continue up the incredible corner with plenty of thank-god pro (small-medium) to keep you from ledging out. Belay on a huge platform from good gear. Pitches 1 and 2 would link with a lot of medium cams & runners. There is a tree for rapping here (no webbing as yet) if people are not psyched on the woolly wideness of p3. pitch 3: 5.9, 110'. Lieback up the corner crack on the left, past a dead tree, then into a perfect chimney with gear in the back. Near the top contort into the Yosemite-like slot and tunnel through for about 35' of moderate squeeze chimney (optional #5; small gear here and there). There is a bit of dirt (and the occasional beer can) as you get closer to the top, but this is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable chimneys we have ever climbed, anywhere!"

Descent Options:

Walk climber's left to a rap that puts you on a ledge then walk off climber's left to a gully and follow the base of the cliff back to the start.

What a cool route - so much fun and great climbing. Without question one of the most enjoyable chimneys anywhere on pitch 3!
