A route for the true adventurer, this route ascends the giant dihedral/chimney system in about 100 yards left of Dark Shadows and just left of Centerfold. The first pitch is non-descript and leads to the base of the actual route. From here, ascend the right wall for about a 160' to a good ledge. A short pitch will take you to the chimney that gives the route its name. Stem up this chimney (no pro) for about 20' or so until you can move into the crack. Climb up the crack to a ledge. The next pitch involves climbing up the face, passing a pin, then stepping left to the base of an offwidth. Climb the offwidth for the next pitch. From here, aim for the striking crack above. After this, a couple pitches in the red stuff will take you to the top. Careful routefinding from the summit will get you into the north fork of the canyon with no rappels. Count on a couple hours from summit to car.

A really great route with some bold climbing involved. The climbing that isnt 'bold' is still continuous and interesting. Thanks to Larry for inviting me to take part!
