Presumably named for local hero Chris Eckstein, this fine route offers sustained movement on top-notch stone. Begin on the furthest left line o' bolts, veering leftwards as you ascend. It may be necessary to remove some of the local vines prior to beginning. The crux comes where you'd think, at the green-lichen-coverd bulge at midheight. A devious sequence gains the lip of the bulge, which is unexpectedly easy to turn. Substantially easier face moves finish at the chains.


Furthest left bolt line on the Right Arrow.


Bolts. Stick clip recommended.
