The crux come fairly early on this one. Climb up to gain the 2nd bolt. From here, work your way to a jug above the left hand feature and clip. Traverse a bit right and up to gain the 4th bolt (crux). From here, it's mostly jugs to the top.


This route is the 2nd route to the left from Gray Hound, 5.12c.


bolts, chains.

Clay Cahoon bolted a direct start to this route on 7/13/2013. It doesn't seem to change the difficulty but has about 20 feet of (really good) independent climbing. He named it Crankonchoss. Thanks Clay!
