The Chimney
Ever popular as a toprope problem.
Directions:  Walk right of the main face and up the gully. It's the obvious triangular chimney.
Description: It's called a chimney, tho it doesn't narrow down until you get right to the top. Very popular with beginning leaders and groups as it's easy to set up as a toprope. Great climbing at a moderate grade.
    Pitch 1: Climb the crack in the left corner to a ledge by a small tree. Continue to the top as desired on the left or right.

Gear: standard rack
Descent: walk off down the trail
History:  1943 - Brooks Dodge & friends
