Description 

This route is on the furthest left side of the rock face and goes straight up from the large block at the bottom. There are 5 or 6 good side pulls on this short route as well as some under clings. This route will make you think a little as you need to piece the moves together in the right order.

Protection 

Chains, they are slightly tough to reach but you can protect the reach without too much trouble or clip into the anchors first with a long sling.

I checked this route out today and have no idea how to safely get to these chains.

They are slightly tough to get to but given my fear of heights I figured if I can do it just about anybody can. That said, you would have to sling the boulder above it to protect stepping down onto that little single foot ledge and threading the chains. There is also a crack slightly above the chains that you can safely plug a #2 Camelot into for additional protection. I'm only 5'8" so it shouldn't be a reach for most.
