Description 

Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones, But Whips and Chains Excite Me.

This route is located to the right 50' of the large fallen block next to The Needle Lies. Follow the prominent crack (can't miss it) to the tree. Rappel off the tree. Excellent crack climb.


Protection 

Standard rack to 3.5 -- eats up nuts. I used a #2 Camalot to protect the last bulge/crack at the top.

I would agree with the description of the route and the quality, this is a great crack climb and very defined, there is also another gear route a little further down the crag to the right form here which looks like a beauty.. Good crack climbs on limestone, what ? Not a mistake this is a great line.

This route now has hangers for an anchor.
