Presently the first bolted route in The Chuting Gallery, Chute 'em Up climbs a nice 92 degree wall on very good stone. Scramble up to a flat tree and then shoot up a steep wall through three .11/.11+ sections before a rest at a crack/flake (gear) @ 55'. At 6' tall, there are no real .12 moves, but the accumulation of .11+ probably merits a .12a rating (under 6' tall uses a slightly harder, alternate sequence).
The moves just below the flake (bolt 7) involve a blind toss that could stymie an onsight attempt... A final .11- section at the last bolt tops it off.
In The Chuting Gallery, first bolted route. Starts about 90' up the gully after The Catwalk cut-off, and about 30' below a shallow, left-facing dihedral.
8 bolts, 2" cam and 1" cam, mid-length slings.
