Chimney Rock-- Technical Section

Seen from the base of Chimney Rock, this face has climbing opportunities (what stands out most to my eye is the crack system), that start from at least 5.7. That is based, though, not on my having climbed this face but comparing it to other 5.7 routes I have done. The face is about 40 vertical feet of climbing, and another nice crack system is a few yard right of it, offering a nice pair of climbs for toproping or trad.
