Description

Start at a lone bolt in a shallow dihedral to the right of the nice-looking System 3 Crack. This bolt is high and getting to it is tenuous so be careful or you'll end up in the bushes below the route as it angles right. Make a couple delicate moves past the bolt (crux) and pull onto easier ground above.

From here the route becomes a system of bulges split by a quintessential Mount Lemmon weakness/crack system. The climbing is easy and fun and the gear is straightforward by Lemmon standards. Finish on the chain anchor which this route shares with System 3 Crack.

Location

Rightmost route on the Chessapeak wall. Look for a lone bolt to the right of System 3 Crack.

Protection

One bolt, light rack. A #3 will help a new leader feel safe up high but you can easily get away without it.
