4 bolts to a 2 chain anchor. Can be toproped, if you're a 5.9 climber, you'll be able to handle the treacherous, but not too difficult scramble around the right side of Chicago Overhang to the chain anchors.

This was listed in the old guide book as "Chicago's East Side 5.11 (Toprope) A top-rope that climbs the east side of the Chicago formation, using face holds & the right edge. If you contrive a line up the face w/o using the right edge, it is 5.12a/b." It has since been bolted for leading and named "Panic City." If you climb up the left crack/corner, it's about a 5.7. I didn't lead climb, but it doesn't look like a very safe lead.
