Short but sweet route climb the little boulder face at the bottom up to the diagonal edge, then its hand over hand following the edge up the face with friction and little edges for your feet. at the end mantle up on top to the chains.


This is on Fallen Angel Boulder at Knightland hike up the trail and take the first carn on the right.


4 Bolts to Chains

Short but stout for the rating since it's one 10b move after another. Feet are thin through the first 3 bolts but improve, somewhat, after that. Crux seems to be between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. There is a sharp loose block on top, be careful when lowering off.

Make sure to use slings, not just quickdraws on the chains or the sharp edge will eat your rope.
