The crux is getting on to ledge near top. It is usually dirty as top of corner acts like a funnel for debris above. Too bad as the climbing is quality.


Chocolate Corner is left of Southern Cross in an obvious corner. It has chocolate colored rock, hence the name.


Standard trad rack. Glue-in Fixe anchors at top.

Bring a big brush, the dust and dirt will makes greasing off easy. Cool opening moves up to the ledge.

Unfortunately that corner is a funnel for the slope above it and gets dirty every year. Fun little route though.
