Description

This route features easy but awkward crack climbing. What could be more fun?

This climb is the crack/corner just right of Sicker Than Jezouin. In the Vogel guidebook, the start of Chips Ahoy is not clearly marked. One option is to start in the Sicker Than Jezouin corner and climb a crack/flake in the wall on the right; from there you can step around right into the Chips Ahoy crack.

Continue up the crack until atop a large boulder near the top of the route. Here the Vogel guidebook shows the route going up the wide crack in the corner. Another option is to make a short traverse left and finish up a crack in the left wall.

Location

This climb is the crack/corner just right of Sicker Than Jezouin.

Descent: walk off climber's left.

Protection

Some larger gear (up to #4 Camalot) can be useful.

Gear anchor at top.

The description for this route is all wrong. Chips Ahoy climbs the face 40' right of Sicker than Jezouin, not the obvious corner just right of it; previous route descriptions all agree with this.

Sorry this wasn't caught earlier to avoid all of the confusion but the description will be changed shortly. Apr 24, 2012

According to the Vogel guide, the climb shown here in the Mountain Project beta photo is actually called Wild East (5.9R). The MP description seems to be correct, which states that Chips Ahoy starts just to the right of Sicker Than Jezouin (5.10d) in a corner/crack system. There is a large block towards the top of the climb that cannot be missed. May 5, 2011
