Ester's Chimney*** S 4a
[ist pitch of Ester's Chimney, 2 kb]90m, 4 pitches. A really fun route with a very unusual finish. 1. 30m IV- Ascend left to the broad arête and climb this until just below the top (loose blocks) move right and climb to the top. 2. 20m 3 climb and walk right across the bay then up into the cave. Bolt belay. 3. 20m 3 Climb the tower below the hole in the roof and then make a long step to get onto the steep wall leading into the tunnel going up through the face. Climb up this to reach a good ledge and bolt belay. 4 20m IV Climb out of the window (cave opening) onto the slab on the left and continue up this to the top. Bolt belays.

Led 1st pitch and seconded the rest with student for RCL prep. The gear on the 1st pitch isn't inspiring and the last pitch is a bold Severe. Nice climbing inside the chimney tho.
