After tackling Rocky Mountain, it was back down to the wall for a bit, before approaching Chimney Rock from its northwestern spur. No chimneys to be had, but plenty of rock still lying about, despite the best efforts of the quarrymen and B-26 bombers. Headed back down to my parking spot using the track that runs along the western flanks of the mountain, which led me back to the wall and Long Seefin.
