Climb to the second fixed belay on Big Chimney. Walk left on ledges and big horizontals until you see an obvious, right leaning hand crack moving up to a right facing corner/overhang/flake system. Up this and undercling/hand traverse out right to the right edge of corners, and pull the overhangs here. Continue to the top as desired.

such variety!! it should be far more popular. climbed with dave. he led P1 and P3 and i led P2. P1 chimney is really fun and easier than it looks (and i am not experienced with chimneys at all). P2 is super fun climbing, but really makes you think about your moves and your gear...lots of variety though!! and then P3 is wild! back up those pins... i am surprised this route is not WAY more popular. cant wait to get back and lead P1 and P3.
Cool route with a lot of variety. The chimney moves were a bit awkward but fun. I led p3 (love those pins) and thought about running out the traverse to reduce drag, but decided to place a #2 cam. Good thing because I slipped and took my 1st lead fall. If not for the #2, I would have landed on top of my partners on the belay ledge. Best decision I ever made.
