Jump to ledge and mantle up. Clip, rest and go for it. When you reach the upper cave traverse the lip to the left and up again to access chains.


Start at the right side of the cave.


5 bolts + anchors

Personally I feel this climb is a letter grade harder then Grey Streak, which should be a letter grade lower then it is. But that's just me.

When you're burned, don't forget about the rail traverse at the top: about eight feet left of the ledge you grab at the top is the last bolt that is a straight traverse left with pretty good feet...but still vertical. All sorts of weird clipping stances to get the chains. Great route!
