This route is located on the striking, slightly overhanging wall up and left of where the main trail meets the cliff beneath Swamp Gator. Begin on a boulder and balance up to a decent hold to begin. Solid edges and long moves make for a power packed ride ending just before the rock turns to crap.
Moves: Bouldery
Descent: Chains
Stays Dry: Light rain

Cool route! Techy and reachy. It's really hard on days it's condensing....Barely got the send.

Def want to stick clip the first bolt. Super sketch above the boulder. Even if you are strong for the grade, a fall there could be season-ending or worse. Actually, a lot of Chaos could use a stick clip. Other than that it's a lot of fun. Big moves. Pretty hard for the grade I think.

Good route, I agree with pig, a touch harder than it looks, but some really fun moves!

Pretty hard if you're under 5'8". Super good movement.

Long moves, indeed. All doable, for a 5 ft person. But felt really hard, especially around the last bolt, mid-11 at least. Not sure how it would be once the feet get ground down.

Better than expected. Like a yo-yo I twice was fooled into using the wrong undercling and had to back down.

A few long moves where you need to lock off and throw a high left hand to a ledge. Loved it! There was a great sense of accomplishment on finishing this one.
