I was looking at this line and dug up the info on rockclimbing.com, of all places. It looks pretty good with a great hand crack at the bottom.

not sure exactly... but if there aren't slings on top, belay your second up then walk 150' climbers' left to a new anchor on a big tree above Long Wall Chimney
