Southside climbs the face between Berkeley and Chicago. A bit of a squeeze job, but an enjoyable climb none the less. The crux begins at a small overhang 5 feet right of the niche in Chicago. The line runs pretty much strait up and down from this spot. There is sufficient rest after the crux, but another tricky spot near the top.


Pro could be placed in adjacent cracks of Berkeley or Chicago. Limited protection on face.

This route is 3 stars. It follows the direct line in the middle of the wall to the summit. Great by definition. Just requires some focus, discipline, and narrow mindedness. Oct 3, 2012

A bit contrived, but worth doing if you have the time. Mar 15, 2011

I think this a Ralph Schmitt route, to my knowledge is has not been lead, would agree about 3 star NOT, its got some hard moves pulling over the overhang, another squeeze in route, Jul 9, 2010

thanks for adding this, I wondered what you guys were working so hard on last Sunday. I especially like the sit-down rest you seem to have found! Mar 23, 2010

Being one that searches MP for classic climbs....can this squeeze job really be 3 stars Mike? Saying that it is close to classic? Or is it more of a fun route that you wouldnt spend the day searching for? To me it sounds like the latter. Mar 23, 2010
