Starting from the ledge atop Boulder Wall on its farthest right side, 9 bolts off the of the ledge give good protection and lead through steep, mind bending, thin face climbing that often leads to chemical dependence, resulting in a two bolt fixed anchor next to a small tree, 80' .

Rappel 140' to ground or keep climbing up. Directly above is Fearless(11c) which tops out on the party ledge of Trooper T. or easily move to the Heinous Ledge, move left on the ledge, walk past the top anchor of Independence (10b) arriving at the start of Heinous Cling (11c). H.C is easily recognized by the black streak through the small, arched roof.

Iron Stone

Chemical Dependence starts up on the Iron Stone Wall. It starts off the same ledge and 20' to the right as/of Silver Queen. It is the furthest right climb with bolts off the ledge. This ledge has multiple access options. Quick access from the ground is the The Ramp (5.7) crack, to the right of Livin' on The Edge (12a) on Boulder Wall. In doing The Ramp (5.7), a climber can reach the anchors (next to a small tree) atop Chemical Dependence while easily belayed from the ground. It is 140' from the ground to the anchors.


From the ledge atop Boulder Wall, you can protect with quickdraws! clipping 9 bolts and a 2 bolt fixed anchor. Maybe bring a little something, something if you're starting via The Ramp (5.7)
