Adjacent to Cottonmouth Corner is a large, obvious chimney system. This route ascends Cottonmouth for the first pitch, then stays right in the chimney instead of climbing the offwidth on the left and then rejoins Cottonmouth for the last 60'. Pitch 1: Climb the first corner right of the roof to the top, then step left onto the face and climb the crack system to below a bush and belay. 5.8, 150' Pitch 2: Step left, pass the bush, then step back right into the chimney and continue upwards through the slot above to belay. 5.8, 180' Pitch 3: Continue up the system, through a difficult section, to its top, stepping left to arrive on a huge ledge. From here, climb up and left to another ledge and then climb the obvious short corner to its top. 5.10a, 180'
