Work your way up the lichen covered face on good little edges past 4 bolts to reach a ledge. A cruxy move to reach golden brown edges and a great corner system lead up left to a tough balancy move and a good rest. Follow the rounded layback crack up and right to several faith moves delivering perfect juggy but hidden edges going through the roof section. Ease your way up to the anchor to find rounded finishing holds. Oh just go ahead and grab those chains, you've earned it.


As the trail rounds the buttress look up to see this line of bolts. The left most line


15 bolts and chains

If it was roadside it would have been climbed a hundred times already because its soooo good. Its a bit of a hike to get to and tends to be windy but totally worth it.

TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! Cross the river! One of my favorite climbs to date. Sustained, intriguing climbing, good rock. Wife and I were starting to wonder if we had gone to far but ran into this thing and it was unmistakable, and had to be climbed. Debatably my favorite climb in Cody.

Worth saying that it is bolted exceptionally well.
