This is the next corner 100 ft left of the atrium (The Hideout). Climb past a chockstone and up into the squeeze chimney above. Skinny people head deep into the chimney and tunnel up and through protecting in the fist-sized crack in the back. Bigger folk will have to chimney the outer section of the crack, protecting with bigger gear. It is kind of green down low but the chimney is clean and fun.
Descent: Rap anchors

very fun route. VERY tight squeeze, only the small need apply. A little slimey as you exit the squeeze. The crux of the route was the double mantle start to avoid touching that rectangular block that looks like it could fall any moment (but might be wedged there forever. I didn't want to find out).

We tried to trundle that chock-stone using every method imaginable. It's staying put.

Damn, I got stuck, but somehow managed to get loose and wiggle my way upward.
