Mixing the amazing first pitch of Break on Through with the second pitch of Chianti makes an awesome 5.8+ link while avoiding the 10c difficulties of Break on Through.

Though just a linkup of popular climbs, this is so good it is worthy of a separate entry, and provides a good opportunity to get on Break on Through for those not up for the second pitch.

See each route for the pitch descriptions. This is suitable for 5.8/9 leaders, the pro is great, and there are many rests between short (but very steep) cruxes.


Many pieces, up to #4 Camalot for P1, which is very long. P2 is short you will have plenty of gear after P1.

Your can link both pitches from the ground in a 190ft lead. Watch your gear and slings for rope drag, though. Nov 13, 2011

A great climb. I like the first pitch of BOT better than that of Chianti. Good pro the whole way. There are rap rings from the tree at the top of P1, but our 60m rope didn't make it to the ledge -- best just finish it anyway! Mar 26, 2012

To the couple who recommended this climb when we were scoping Long John and the cute ol fluffy dog on 12/3/17.... It appears you left a white helmet at the base of the climb. I'd be happy to get it back to you, or whoever's it is - send me a message. Dec 5, 2017
