Given 10a in the 92 Watt's guide, this route has continued to lose some holds since then, and is a bit harder now. Overall, the rock on the route now feels pretty solid. Wide edge moves lead to a tricky overhung finish on pockets and edges just before the anchors.
On a short pillar just off the Misery Ridge/Red Wall trail, below Bill's Flake. The route on the right side of the pillar.
Bolts (aprox. 4). Rap anchors.

Fun route that I found to be somewhat tricky to start and finish. Jugs through the middle. I'd give it 3 stars if it were a little longer.

This route is fun jug climbing to a somewhat hard move right below the chains.

Climbed this route on Saturday skipping the bolts and placing natural gear. Makes for a fun gear pitch, too bad the bolts are already there :-(
Gear beta. Micro brass nut down low (sort of useless once you get going. ) Slight run-out to the side-pull flake where 2x Green C3s go in, these cams are not great but you can double them up and feel sort of good about it. Climb below bulge and stick bomber #2 BD in the horizontal and go to the anchors.

Dances With Clams and neighboring Pop Art now have chain anchors, not rap hangers.

Definitely a little short but still totally worth doing! Plenty of fun moves. Crux comes right past the last bolt, and right past the overhang, which made it feel totally safe. I felt more comfortable leading this route than some slabby routes of an easier grade.
