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.


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.
