Start at a wide flare and do a big reach up and right to the first bolt. A few reachy moves through jugs takes you to the second bolt. Avoid the blocks off to the right. Continue up, trending left past a total of five bolts, a few hidden jugs, and a big finish to anchor chains above a ledge.


5 bolts to chains


This line is at the left-most edge of the cliff. It shares the first two bolts of Jekyll & Hyde and Bear Fingers, then continues left where J&H breaks right and up over a bulge.

For me it was definitely harder than Silverado Squatters.

Super fun. There are some money jugs on the the way up. Feels safe. The hardest part for me was pulling the ledge up to the anchors.

AT 5'8", there are a couple spots on this climb where the moves felt insecure due to how long they were. Its a bit thin between the first and second bolt. It took me a bunch of tries to get between the 5th bolt and the anchors. Followed the pockets more or less straight up and then super reached to slopers straight overhead to get over the hump.
