Description 

This route is sandwiched between Dirtbag and Apostasy. It's a bit similar to both. Big, juggy holds up to the last bolt. The finish is committing on some crimpy stuff. Fun route.

5 bolts to chains

Fun climb that is new and not in the guide book. I think it was more fun than any other climb on the wall.

This one is my favorite 10a on the wall and it's also the easiest 10a at chuck i think.

I agree with the comments that this is the funnest climb on the wall. The end is a bit committing, pulling over the bulge on the crimps, but that is the only reason this would be rated a 10a.

This is a great climb. The weather at Chuckwalla wall in February with the sun on the sandstone is fabulous.

This is the one that Hyrum showed us about climbing on. There are usually a lot of people on the weekends here so if you need help with anything, it is great.
