Description 

From the chains of BLM-7, follow bolts up and left onto a slab. The guidebook gives this 4 stars; honestly, I would stop at the chains of BLM-7 and rap. The exposure of the first few bolts is worth a star for sure, but dirty, mossy, slab climbing is all that awaits you after that. If you do climb this, DO NOT rap back to the chains of BLM-7 as the book suggests. I did and it was sketchy and sets you up for a huge pendulum swing into the middle of World Wall if you slip. If you do decide to get on this route, I suggest you rap straight down into the middle of World Wall, and then rap again on the chains of one of the 12's (Rainy Day Woman etc) to the ground.

Location 

To reach this route, you have to climb BLM-7 or one of the hard 12's or 13's above Girls in the Gym. It starts about 90 feet off the ground at an uncomfortable hanging belay at any of three sets of chains that are side by side.

Protection 

10 bolts to chains.
