Chase Webb on the first ascent of "Grade Expectations". This routes is in the brown streak just left of Thunderbird. Same grade, but very different moves. Stay right of the bolts. Pull a hard, but well-protected move from the undercling to an invisible bomber pocket. Then use surprisingly sparse hands and feet all the way to the good hands just before the anchors.

Avery drive is well developed. There are a hand full of routes that are bolted and a few that have anchors at the top. Mucho bouldering and plenty of hard routes where you may want a rope. Great climbing all along Avery drive. And not as polished as the upper level at Chandler and higher too. Have fun.
