DescriptionChicago's West Side is immediately east of The Kitchen, just inside the gate. It is the west-facing wall on the same formation as Chicago Overhang. (It isn't really on what I'd consider the same formation as The Kitchen, but is covered under The Kitchen in the Ruckman guide).
The route is fairly easy climbing on large edges; it can be made a little more challenging by going straight up the smooth surfaces, or by staying on the arete.
It requires 15-18 feet of extension from the anchor bolts to get the anchor point over the edge for a slingshot top rope.
