4 out of 5 stars WHAT A VIEW

It would not hurt to have a few of medium cams 3,4,4, and maybe a hexi or two. Quick draws should have some length , medium and long to get the drag down especially around the crux.

3 out of 5 stars Loose but fun moves

I agree with JilesPerry, some great moves, but no bolts, so look for the trees on top. I use 2 - 20 ft sections of webbing or longer to tie off the trees. Loose rock all over the bottom part.

4 out of 5 stars No more bolts, and for good reason!!!!

Super loose!!!! wear your helmets!!! you can top rope this route from the trees at top if you walk around the right side of the chief and hike up. all the bolts have been cut but you can still see whats left of them and use them to stay on route. i would strongly recommend skipping the start and going way left to where you can step up on the more solid almost stair like ripples, take your time the bottom is the loosest part, then traversing right, you can bend the flake with your fingers where the first or second bolt used to be. the middle of the climb is very solid and isn't breaking off, watch out for the flake below the obvious crux. the top face isn't terrible everything big that was going to break off already has. This route has one of the best moves in the canyon in my opinion, just be careful of your holds, if you take your time you'll always find sturdy rock.
