This rock is a peak of a large cliff of rocks at the end of
the mountain called Little North Mountain about one mile north of the little country
village Cootes Store.
It got its name from the lofty rock which stands out from
the cliff and very much resembles a chimney. It is said to be one hundred and thirty five
There has not been but one man on the top of this rock. You cant go out one side of
the cliff which is level with the mountain.
In the year 1914 Mr. Wetherholtz ascended the rock at
the highest and narrowest side. A great many people gathered to see the wonderful feat,
which they thought no man could do. When he reached the top he sat down and rested for a
few minutes and then stood on his head. He then descended to the ground unharmed. There is
a legend that an Indian went to the top of this rock for a pint of whiskey.
