From Dirty Crack, walk right to the final crack before the main chimney which gives Chimney Top its name. Climb the crack then move right along a ledge for a belay. Continue up the crack to a small overhang, crawl left, then face climb to a small ledge for another belay. Traverse right to a set of twin cracks which leads to a roof. Dodge the roof by traversing left to a flared crack which ends in an alcove near the top. From the alcove, climb a few more feet to reach the top. Now you know why they call it Zig-Zag.
Descent: Rap from tree or walkoff

The final crack before the main chimney is where Chimney Direct is located. This must be the crack left of that route.

It has to be left of the 5.7r variation of Chimney Direct.
