This is a fun two pitch chimney climb. The second pitch is worth the climb.

If, at the end of the climb, you hop over the chimney, there is a tree and rock tunnel that you can rappell off of, using a 60m rope. rappell as far to the left as you can, through the trees.

Slither....slide...and march up the ramp....Then Take on the view at the top! Grea climb. Is the first "pitch" the small offwidth? or the little boulder problem with the rhodo on it?

If you're climbing Arrowhead, I recommend stopping halfway up and untying to check this thing out. You can walk very deep into the chimney before committing, which at that point is only a 10 foot section of easy chimney to the top. We scrambled off via a faint trail. Encountered a rattlesnake on the way back, along the bottom of the cliff. I recommend it, the adventure adds 2 or 3 stars.

I managed to get my 6 year old up this. What fun. View is terrific. Rap back down through the chimney.
