Description

This often overlooked and sometimes obscure line starts between a small but tall pine tree and an oak tree, a few feet to the left of "Chuck Middle" and 5' from the left side of the wall. Climb up and left so that the roof can be passed on the left (crux). Continue up the left side of the wall to the top. A very nice route, both below and above, but sometimes needs to be gardened to clear the path of foliage overgrowth.

Location

This is the last route on Chuck's Wall, approximately 25' left of "Unexpected Party".

Descent: rappel from the rap station in the pine tree at the end of "Unexpected Party". Please feel free to bring some extra webbing to replace that which is there if it is getting too old/frayed.

Protection

Primarily medium gear, medium-large nuts, tri-cams, Cams to #2 (though you can probably find places for a #3 if you look hard enough).

I think I did this route right, always hard to tell since there is limited beta here. The roof you pass on left is Chuck Middle, said to be TR according to Indy guide but when up there it looks doable on lead.

Added red webbing to existing rings and added date to the tail for reference.

Burton, if you end up doing a lead through Chuck Middle let me know (climb_md@yahoo.com) so I can update my files accordingly. And thanks for the add to the rap station! All the other webbing up there prior to this has been mine. 7 days ago
