Lisa Pritchett leading Chute to Kill

Description 

This route will test your faith in the J-Tree stone! Very delicate thin edging starts the route off with a crux section between the 3rd and 5th bolts. The start could be considered the 10c section depending on height. A fun route to top-rope as well after climbing Lead Us Not Into Temptation (5.9). The best decent is to rap off the Lead Us Not Into Temptation anchors. Enjoy!

Protection 

6 Bolts to a 2 bolt anchor (with no rap rings).

A fun and well-protected outing on the lesser visited backside of the North Astro Dome. Good for after warming up on Lead Us Not Into Temptation. Three stars out of five.
