You might pitch off this one on a hot day.

Sustained stemming and right foot high stepping up steep oatmeal past 8 decent bolts, stays stimulating until just above the last bolt traverse sorta right on easy terrain to Chute to Kill's anchor.

Location

Starts off the right side of the main ledge / featured block on the west face of North Astro Dome, just right of the start of two bolted routes - Lead Us and Godsend. The first bolt is just above this ledge.

8 bolts and bolted belay above Chute to Kill. Rappel from Lead Us No Into Temptation's anchor 70 meter rope works best.
