http://www.summitpost.org/phpBB3/anyone-know-what-hapened-to-katahdin-s-chimney-class-4-climb-t63030.html is a discussion on this climb that I can't seem to post to, so I'm linking it to this particular route here.
I wanted to say that this was climbed by my friend when he was in the Boy Scouts, probably 1962, and he remembers it as a non-technical scramble.
I'm interested in climbing it as a winter gully climb, and have been encouraged by a few who have done it. I'll post if completed this feb, 2013. in the meantime, PM me if you've got beta on it.
