Just around the corner from Dirty Bird is a pair of lines which climb much better than they appear. Move up through high steps and small holds to meet up with an evil run for the chains. Clean the draws on the anchors for your partner so you can laugh while they experience the spicy ending you just experienced.

Not sure what the spicy run to the chains in the description was all about. I don't think the last bolt is even below your feet when you clip the chains. Fun route though.

Solid 10b. Interesting little move near the bottom and super committing going for the anchors. Killer view. Nice job.

fun balance-y line. easier than Here comes the beep beep with holds that are more apparent. go high up left beyond the anchors for a pocket to clip the anchors from (that should hopefully soon get chalked up)

Great slab climb. Very thought provoking with 2 cruxes. One down low and one below the chains. I loved watching all my jug-hauling friends cuss and swear as they scrambled up this one.

Climbable after a summer shower. It doesn't stay dry, but the top was dry by the time I got up there. It had been in the sun before the rain, so I think it just dried fast. The lower crux is well protected; I didn't have any trouble at the top.

Awesome and fun moves on this route, but multiple ledges with mud on them and most of the route had sand on it unfortunately. Clipping the chains is a little precarious.
