Starts on the far side of the tower away from balanced rock. The chimney is on the 2nd pitch. Climb deep in the chimney and there is a crack for protection.

One of my favorite short climbs. The first pitch is a run up 5.6 to a newly added bolt and crack and chock-stone for an achor. The second pitch is the best chimney EVEEER. It starts with a 15-20 foot off-width and becomes a full body crack. You can go deep deep inside for a crack. I didnt know this and went straight up the chimney with no pro for the entire 2nd pitch. 1 double rope rap the same way.

I rope solod this route. Some large flakes that made it easier to get in the chimney have been pulled out.
