Clipping the anchors is burly if you can't reach them from the jug!

Great climb, make the spicy move to the ledge up high then clip the anchors, and don't let your partner talk you into hanging a long draw for him/her from the chains ;)

Hardley weaksauce Kipp and good job on this thing. It's a nemisis route for me. Can't help but think after Sunshine sent this he gave a maniacal laugh.
