Chock stone is found left of the 5.5 summit route and right of the huge cave. look for the obvious dihedral that is only about 30 feet high.

This climb is short but fun and good to do if your arms are tired as it can be stemmed almost the whole way up. Pass a 5.8 bulge / roof for the crux to easier ground above.

One and a half stars.


You can set a TR anchor by going up the summit route and slinging a natural hole in the rock equalized with a solid single bolt.

This climb is short and easy. Crux is the move over the slight ceiling but you can stem through it.
