Description

While I don't personally know Chuck, after climbing this line I imagine him a pleasant man, well-mannered, strong and stoic. When irritated, Chuck can get upset and difficult to deal with, but given some time to cool down, he'll regain his composure and shrug things off.

A short and powerful route, Good Old Chuck starts off casual and leads to a deceptive, devious, and explosive crux. Unravel the boulderesque bulge or peril!! Allow the dust to clear, pull past the tornado, and climb towards safer ground.

  • Game shoes required.

Begin this route on big pockets and deep edges, gain a stance and let the fun begin. Balance, question, and second guess your next few moves through the bulge and if you're lucky, passage will be granted. Finish out the route on steepening terrain using side pulls and scoops.

Location

This is the third and shortest line in from the far left wall. Good Old Chuck is directly left of Garden of Eden

Protection

This is really well protected, and the crux section can be stick clipped from the ground. The crux is very perplexing. It is powerful and exacting; strenuous side-pulling on not-so-good crimps. Find your feet, stand up and reach really high for the crimp over the right side of the bulge. If you stay on woo hoo! This is really just a 4 move, v5-v6 boulder problem, bookended by some easier climbing. Sep 1, 2015

I think with good beta this is about V4. Feb 23, 2016
