Chubby Pickle Arete.
This is on the right side of the west face of the Chubby Pickle. It is the obvious (and much harder than it looks!) bolted face. I would recommend for a cam (0.75 - 1.5) between the 1st and 2nd bolts in the hollow flake. The climbing is easy, but a slip would result in a grounder. The climbing on the arete proper (bolts 3 - 4) is GREAT and defines off angle & off balance! Great climb!
Find a (chubby) pickle....
5 bolts (and a supplementary cam.?.) to chain anchor.

Have holds broken near the start of this? I sure didn't see a place for a 0.75.... The piece I got in was I think a 0, maybe a 00. Definitely sounds sketchy when you knock it.
Fun after you get past the scary start.

Hmm, nothing has broken that I know of. The cam goes between the first two bolts, yellow or orange TCU, which is a 0.75" to 1" cam, not a 0.75 Camalot. If you are tall, it's also easier just to do a jump start to the good holds.
