Description 

Chivalry is a good route that is just to the right of the The Shitter or two routes to the right of Balance. Look for a line of hangers snaking up the face, just at the apex of where the trail to the Pinnacle scrambles across a narrow and exposed ledge. The route gets a PG-13 rating ‘cuz you wouldn’t want to blow the first clip'. Well, no one should consider using a stick clip; just figure out how to do the move. Once the first bolt is clipped, launch up into a difficult mantle that makes for the mental crux of the route. Afterwards regain your composure on the face, and delicately ascend past 4 or so more bolts to a set of anchors. Enjoy!

Protection 

8 quickdraws should certainly suffice. Maybe take a single locker for the first bolt if that makes you more comfortable.

This route should have a sign on it that says, "Avoid Me". Chossy and Mossy the whole way up...not worth setting foot on and I am a big fan of most climbs in Cheyenne Canyon. The moves were not fun, nor were they challenging. Did not flow well at all. Dont waste your time.

Come on, Jason. This is not a bomb and I found no loose rock, but the lichen is on the rock and not on the good holds. Stick clip the first bolt and have fun. This is a good slab climb that keeps you thinking.

Like I said, I am a fan of most climbs in the canyon. Just thought this was a total junkpile from start to finish...did not flow well at all. I guess we will have to agree to disagree on this one.

And your one star rating is not much better than my bomb.
