Description

If you're back here and having fun on the other routes, give this one a try too. It certainly does have an issue of being run-out but the start is well protected as well as the higher crux. Rock quality is fair and for the length of the route, a worthwhile adventure. Crazy old bolts on this one!

Protection

4 old bolts and a shared anchor atop Chute to Kill.

This is indeed a serious route. The first two bolts are easy to find, after that they are not. The route could go any number of directions after the 2nd bolt. I only found one more at about twice the height of the 2nd bolt. And the clipping hold (biggest 'flake' on the route) was flexible. Very spicy but within the grade. Mar 8, 2005

Fun climbing in a seldom visited area makes this a worthy tick to seek out. Although runout it's not really bad for a competent 5.8/9 leader as the hard moves are always near a bolt. This definately needs the bolts replaced as they are waaaaay old (the bolts have square nuts). Two stars out of five. Mar 3, 2005
