|I believe that the left to right angling crack that I mentioned is the obvious crack starting at the tree pictured in the center of the photo. I am sure other variations exist at about the same level of difficulty.|

Found the Chockstone 2 pitch, then noticed some anchors in the middle of the face to the right. New to trad climbing it looked like an excellent place to practice. There are two cracks that lead to the first anchor. Both about 5.4-.5. The anchor is set up vertically.
From there it was a debate to go up right, or traverse a little to the left join a right angle crack to an obvious bench. Placement was more obvious (to me) left. Either way works. What is important is that from the middle anchor, at the one o'clock position is a bench, on that bench is a second set of anchors. West end. Still 5.4-.5. Anchors are over the top so out of sight to the second. There is still a bit to the summit, we chose to bail from the anchors. From the anchors you can single rap off the backside or rap back to the middle anchors, then a second rap. 60m would not reach bottom off the face.
