Description [Edit]

Facing towards the parking lot for Ryan Mtn., this route is located on the west side of North Cave Rock.

A fun line with newer bolts protecting what I belive to be the route's crux. The third bolt looks like it might hold a feather weight fall but I wouldn't push my luck. The chain anchors are in good shape.

Thank you to whom ever put in the new bolts (2) and took the time to paint them.

Protection [Edit]

Joshua Tree guide (Vogel, R.) suggests two bolts, however, the first bolt is gone. Two new bolts (3/8") accompany an original (black) third bolt. Chain anchors on top.

A short friction climb close to the car, but nothing to get excited about. One star (maybe) out of five.

Chocolate Chips is the real name for this route; some guidebooks listed this as being on the west side of South Cave Rock, which caused some confusion. Oct 17, 2005
