This climb ascends the right most bolt line on this wall. It has variable climbing through several steep sections with some bold sections. Approach via the right bolt line after getting to the base. This will lead to a belay anchor on a small ledge right before you punch out of the sill and onto the limestone. The climb is rather dirty for its first 25 feet of the second pitch. Continue up to a small roof and surmount it to the left. The roof pull feels much harder than 5.10a with loose rock for your feet and terrible handholds.


Right of Chips ascends the edge of the large dihedral.
