Description:

Great Climbing. Getting their is pretty easy (unless you go up the poop shoot, then you're putting your life on the line). (Chimney is the big Black line that goes up the North East face of Olympus. You can desend by rapping because there are belay anchors setup on every pitch. 4-5 pitches first two are real easy.

1 out of 5 stars Good but not great

Fun climbing, but not classic. More of a gully than actual chimney. One pretty good chimney pitch. Did a really fun wide crack over a small roof on the last pitch. This is just left of the main chimney. Wanted to look for the fun crack on the main face but darkness was coming. Only brought a single rope and didn't see the 1/2 way raps on the first two pitches so we walked down the gully. The approach seemed to have been cut out with a weed whacker. Thanks, to whomever did this.
