Up in Arms is between Daisy to the right and The Benefactor to the left. It starts just right of the highest stunted tree growing off the belay ledge that runs along the base of the crag. The first four bolts have the easiest climbing at the Choss Garden to date (yes, easier than Daisy), but get braced for the moves between the 5th and 6th bolts -- legit 11d, particularly if going for the flash. Maybe height-dependent, and not for the adrenalin-adverse.


As of this post, the sixth bolted line from the left of the crag.


Draws, chains on top.

Easy going with a great rest before the last 3 bolts of tenuous pulling. Surmount the small roof on good crimps and good feet - with one sorta big throw to a jug moving left. Very fun moves and feels like u really need to commit with the bolt placement the way it is - a long draw on the last bolt is useful. Squirrely wannabe jugs to the chains. You can utilize a knee bar to clip the chains if you'd like. I didn't feel it was height dependent.
