Description

Chromium Chain, though short, is a great line with plenty of variety. A great choice if it starts to rain, as it stays dry for quite a while. Climb up the really cool looking dihedral getting gear and clipping semi-sketch pins and then bust the funky crux at the lip. I have seen this done a variety of ways, and none of them have been pretty.

Location

The route is on the ledge you encounter to your right when you reach the cliffline. It is the left of the two sweet looking dihedrals.

Protection

Handful of small cams- I think it goes cam, pin, cam, pin, cam, pin...etc.
