For what Chlorochose is lacking in aesthetics and sustained climbing, it tries to compensate with it's bolt count. Chlorochose provides a "no-commitment" style of climbing for those who may be venturing onto their first multipitch route or those who want to cruise 450 vertical feet in record speed. The climb primarily follows gold hangers up the large, gaping dihedral to the right of the Dalles Grises raps, switching to another dihedral half-way up when the original peters out.

P1(5.8+) Follow gold hangers up the obvious dihedral, starting with a couple of burly stemming moves off the deck. 50ft

P2(5.8) Keep following the line of bolts up the broken dihedral, occasionally stepping right on to the face. Belay where the route crosses Sucepe. 50ft

P3(5.8) While Sucepe veers right, follow the face and left crack above the belay. 50ft

P4(5.7) Climb up the wide dihedral. 50ft

P5(5.7) Continue up the wide dihedral until forced to move left when it disappears. Soon afterwards, belay around the corner. 50ft

P6(5.7) Follow the new dihedral, stepping left whenever possible to follow the cleanest swaths of rock. 100ft

P7(5.7)This pitch is defined by slightly more continuous movement on cleaner rock. Finish as you started: more climbing in an obtuse dihedral. 100ft


Walk climbers right from the end of the Dalles Grises rappels. Chlorochose starts behind a stand of trees in the back right corner.


With bolts literally every 3 to 4 feet, this is indeed a multipitch sport route by any definition. Many pitches can be linked but plan to bring a plethora of draws. With 18 we ended up clipping every second bolt (and sometimes every third bolt) to link pitches.
