A decent route if you're in the area. This route could use a little TLC. It's technically a little harder that Chromium Chain but not quite as pumpy. The gear is tricky, but just (barely) good enough -- although the old bolt really needs to be replaced. Slider nuts would probably protect the thin seam below the bolt better than the brass I used.

Climb the obvious left facing corner past thin gear and a bolt to a stance near the top at a good jug and a semi-hollow block. The gear (.5 camelot) in the block is probably fine but certainly gives pause to those last roofy moves -- which are luckily easier than they look.


Just to the right of Chromium Chain.


light rack of cams to a 0.5 camelot. A few of the smaller slider nuts and some brass wires.
