Description Suggest change

Rossiter calls this route "Thrill of the Chaise", but "Cheers" seems slightly more in line with the crag "naming conventions" (if there is such a thing).

Begin as for Dementia, but move right into a big, easy, left-facing corner (I remember going a few feet right of the line shown in the photo here).

From the left-facing corner, clip a bolt on the face to the left (this is a bit of a stretch). I find the crux is getting onto this face. Once on, climb straight up past another bolt to the top. You can place wired stoppers above the last bolt. Rossiter's topo has a two bolt anchor, but I do not remember one in 1998. These would make toproping Cheers convenient.

Per Carl Sampurna: this shares a two-bolt anchor with Tipsey." The 3rd edition of the D'Antonio guidebook incorrectly shows Dementia going to the same anchor .
