The first 3 bolts is strenuous with no feet with sloping holds. Just grunt up this to a nice no hands rest. Moving up to the old chains placement is really fun - supposedly 11b to this point, I thought it was easier. Big moves to big holds.
At the old chain placement the moves get trickier and steeper. It slopes in slightly then bulges out. The next 3-4 moves is the obvious crux. As you reach this insloping area find crimps - then to an interesting triangular pocket, a pinch, a crimp then a bigger hold at the next crease. Once thru it you are rewarded with awesome traversing jugs to the chains. You'll be pumped and exposed but the holds are there.

10 bolts to chains

Despite the 2 star rating (I gave it 3) I really enjoyed this route. The upper half is the same as the climb to the right (Everest 201)...but the lower half features some fun slopers (with bad feet) up to a nice hand jam, a few nice jugs and then a fun switch onto the top of Everest. The start move seems a bit intimidating but is ok and can be stick clipped if that makes you feel safer (we didn't see the need too, as a fall would suck but wouldn't send you rolling down the hill). The upper crux is mega classic, moving off a 1 1/2 finger crimp into a nice horn for a quick shake out, then instantly into a mono followed by a blob 2 finger hold up to a tiny crimp and a desperate grab for an ok hold. After that it's just keeping it together to get to and clip the chains.
