The chute is the small dihedral in the roof at the top. To get there you can climb any route to the left or right though Ressurection is the obvious choice just below it. Climb up using blocks on the right to get your left foot swung up to a good hold at the lip of the roof. One good layback part in the seem is wrenched upon to get out and left to the solution pocket on the left wall. Groth lead as well-

The chute shot me down yesterday. I think I was using the wrong foot beta for turning over into the dihedral. Great climb though, can't wait to go back and clean it up.

The last time I saw Dave do this he used a butt start to get more altitude.
