The start is wandering and funky. Use a runner on the first 2 bolts ( see below ) Very pumpy and overhanging start with great holds. Once you make it the crux ( about 3/4 of the way up ) its gets bit harder with small holds. Very fun climb!


From the Belay platform above "Shelf Serve" and "Chain Gain" Traverse 6 feet right to find the first clip that is out of view. Use a full length runner for this clip!! ( and maybe even the second clip ) From here the climb heads left, above the hanging chain, and then upwards onto the face/arete ( right hand side of the headwall) Climber can be lowered all the way down to the ground, or bypass this all together by climbing Shelf Serve and Chain GANG as one continuous route. There will be severe road drag either way, but its worth it, Very fun exposed route!
