This is probably the climb you came here for– the sharp hanging arete that you can see from a mile away, and with moves that match its position. Unbroken Chain is one of the best of its grade in the area, and a must-do for NRG 5.12 sport climbers.

Pumpy, steep, right-trending moves through juggy horizontals put you at the base of the arete. The crux involves a few moves of pure arete balance.


Just left of the prominent prow that is Whores in Church (13c).


8 newly installed glue-ins to anchors. Thanks NRAC!
