Description [Edit]

Chummin' follows a line 15 feet left of I Love LA.

Super fun and reasonably-protected 5.9 face climbing past two bolts gains a massive ledge.

A reachy, 5.11 move gets you off the ledge. A few more moves gains another smaller ledge (and a good rest before pulling the roof). A couple of balancy moves (5.11b), with your left hand on the arete, lead to easier ground and then to the anchor.

Protection [Edit]

This route is seriously runout at the crux. Any gear that might be placed is marginal. This is really only a toprope...and even then, significant swing-potential makes pulling the crux a thought-provoking endeavor.

I've explored placing a directional but none of the rock above the crux is hard enough to hold a bolt.

Update: 4 protection bolts and 2 anchor bolts were replaced 9/99 by Reese Martin.
