From the top of the first pitch of elmo head up into a short section of thin face climbing into a very thin flaring crack. Make sure to protect the crack well as a fall will result in decking and impalement on a very sharp stump. Once atop the thin crack push through two easy roof mantles and you are at the chains.

Protection: Bolts for the thin face and roofs. Small offset brassies and/or some micro C3s/Mastercams.

This climb is best climbed when it isn't blazing hot out.
Have fun!

Protect the thin crack with a small purple #5 BD stopper in first constriction half way up the crack and a good belay will keep you off the ledge through the crux
