Chimney moves

Chimney moves

Post by enoch308 » Sun Aug 17, 2008 9:35 am

Went on a guided climb up Baxter's Pinnacle in the Teton's last week.
Loved the chimney moves as we neared the top. I would like to do some chimney moves here in the Red if I could find some that protect well. I guess Cavers would be a possibility, but everyone seems to describe it as a long runout. Anybody know of a chimney here that protects well ?

Missing the Obvious at Willies wall is a good one. The third pitch of Good tang,
Come to Me Marie is really good and no need for anything bigger than a 4 bd
I'm sure there's more I can't think of

chimneys always protect well with your body.
The only escape is up.

since chimneys aren't considered REAL climbing, why waste yer time? wouldn't you be better sticking to golf if you are in search of a boring past time?

I've got my eye on a new direction for a career move. Saint Nick made a lifetime based on doing the chimney thing. Yeah, I guess it is a bit repetitive but... big edges, little edges... a pocket now and then. It's all a matter of perspective pig.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll check some of them out.

Isn't Beachcomber (5.4) at Pebble Beach sort of a chimney? There's also a short chimney section at the Hideout in MV called Born Again Christian (5.8).

For some reason there's a dumb smiley face where the "8" should be in the 5.8 from my last post. Must be a typo. There's really no reason I'd want to bling out the rating with a smiley- I did it in the dark with a headlamp and didn't really care for it that much.
