This covers all of the current "routes" in this area. All follow crimpy lake stones with not much variation. A dihedral route is possible, as is mantling on a small ledge and pulling some sick roof moves in the tunnel. All are pretty fun...all can be slimey...but nonetheless, get out there and get on it...someone put a lot of work into this!

One can set up a 'great' belay right in the flow of Chester Creek if they want. And if that's not a good location then the pile of trash at the base of the climbs will have to do ; ) The sick tunnel move has just about THE best crux hold you'll ever get your hand around.

But seriously, as Nodin says this is a legit place to mess around if you're bored of action at the Whopee Wall and VE. A couple bolts would be totally do-able to put up some draws for leading on to avoid the trespass top-rope, but one might have to ask the question if that's not just a little bit too much work for something like this.
