Comments: I like Chain Gang for my warm up route better then The Warm Up Route because, their is no line to climb it, and it's one of the first climbs in the sun, and it's a bit thuggy and bouldery and with couple knee bars in the right places makes this route cup cake for me :-)Justen Sjong still owes me a happy meal with an action figure for sending this route back in the day lol :-)

Comments: Climbed A Little Nukey last weekend, I have done this route a ton of times in the past 25 years, its a Courtright mega classic super fun route. Some of the bolts look a bit old, but I still trust them, but I think in the next couple years a number of them will need to be replaced with new ones. I never had a problem going on the anchors on the top of the third pitch and climbing right to the first bolt to start the 4th pitch, but if climbers want to build an anchor on the crack below the anchor ... more >>
