Around the corner from all the activity in the cave complex of Chain Rock is the sheer North Face. Working up to a crack mid height might be the crux, then a satisfying couple of long reaches to horizontals gets one to the top out. Slightly overhanging to get the blood warmed up.

This route stays in shade a long, long time and can be good when hiding from the summer sun.


Find the Spaceship from the Main Carter lake trail. Northeast from here is Chain Rock with its gaping cave and beautiful V-Book. Hiding to the north of the cave area, to the left of the Chain Male prow, is the route.


Pad is nice.
