Bouldery start leads to good pockets to get a quick shake. Choose the line through the crux that suits your style then gain the block to the right. Continue right of the bolt line to pockets then follow them to the chains. The crux is down low but the pump will most likely be the biggest obstacle to success.


On 2nd tier from the bottom (left) in upper cave. Left of Beam and Coke.

More of the same only with smaller pockets. The crux between bolts 4-5 involves a long throw between two good 2 finger pockets with all sorts of ticked sucker ones nearby that people must use to make the route a lot harder for them. A connesieur of knee bars will find a decent one in the blocky corner post crux before rounding the corner into more pockets and one last deadpoint bump to good finishing jugs. The top out on this is much less stressful than beam and coke though not a cakewalk.

Again, wish this was 13a but since I can't climb 13a anywhere else I am left to suggest a high 5.12 rating since the crux feels max v5. This route doesn't compare in difficulty to cross eyed and painless or teardrop, 2 standard 13a's, or even knuckle up or 40 oz to freedom which took me several more tries and are similar styles.

I think this is pretty fairly graded at low end 13a or hard 12d, definitely done some 13a's that are easier. The crux is for sure reach dependent (I'm 5'9 and was maxed out). To compare this route to endurance routes like teardrop or especially 40oz doesn't make much sense, I'd say it's more comparable to Malvado & El Diablo in length and difficulty. Expect some fun setup moves to one hard move down low then a bit of pump on good holds at the top. The crux section of this route has the best rock at chadbourne. Jun 22, 2015
