BETA PHOTO: Panic City 5.11a


Easy climbing to the first bolt. Follow the right edge using some face holds.

For a 5.12a/b variation avoid using the right edge at all.


Climb the east (left) side of the Chicago formation.


4 bolts to chain anchors.

If you want a 5.7/8 variation you can stick to the left through the whole climb

This is a fun little route. Easy climbing past two bolts, couple cool cruxy moves, a couple more bolts, then big jug hauling to the top.

The 4th bolt up has come loose and should not be clipped into if your heading up today. I'll be going up later in the day today to take care of the problem. just an FYI to climbers in the area, these get a lot of use so make sure to check them out while climbing in these high traffic areas.
