Presently the first bolted route in The Chuting Gallery, Chute 'em Up climbs a nice 92 degree wall on very good stone. Scramble up to a flat tree and then shoot up a steep wall through three .11/.11+ sections before a rest at a crack/flake (gear) @ 55'. At 6' tall, there are no real .12 moves, but the accumulation of .11+ probably merits a .12a rating (under 6' tall uses a slightly harder, alternate sequence).

The moves just below the flake (bolt 7) involve a blind toss that could stymie an onsight attempt... A final .11- section at the last bolt tops it off.


In The Chuting Gallery, this is the first bolted route. Start about 90' up the gully after The Catwalk cut-off and about 30' below a shallow, left-facing dihedral.


8 bolts, 2" cam and 1" cam, and mid-length slings.

I got on this route not knowing I needed gear. I'm not sure if having gear would make me feel any better. That flake might expand. I vote for a bolt. Fun route.
