This amazing line takes the second line of bolts off the ground to the right of Illusion Dweller (the first being old 1/4 inch bolts from an .11d). Tricky and challenging face climbing past five bolts constitutes the technical crux, while the 'redpoint' crux is 30 feet of gritty, flared crack that arches left to join Illusion Dweller before its crux. Shares the Illusion Dweller rappel anchor. Someone must follow to clean; descend as for Illusion Dweller WITH AT LEAST A 60M ROPE.
Approach as for Illusion Dweller; The Chameleon is about 35-40 feet to the right and starts from the ground.
