Chains were moved down removing the last crux???

Sure, it's like this...If you can't get a date with a supermodel then catch her alone at night and cut her face up to create horrendous scars. Then she will be ugly and nobody will want to date her so your chances of taking her out will greatly increase.

Love this route! Goes on forever. Draws on bolts 6,7,8, and 9 are mine.

Not the best on the wall but still very good and needs to get more love. Get the business done with on the first half and then enjoy a very pleasant run to the top. Super enjoyable and very long.

Deceptively pumpy mid section, particularly because there are 40 different ways to do it, none much easier than the other. Fun bouldery climbing to a nondescript finish.
