Super fun route up the main slab on Mt. Chaktar. First two pitches have some 5.9 slab moves, and second two pitches are easier coming in around 5.8.

Route location left to right is:
Courage of the Fearless Crew
Ghosts of the Past
We Expect you
Strassman Memorial Buttress

Pitch 1:
Clip bolts to the left facing roof/corner, continuing up clipping bolts to a small stance, anchor. 5.9 14 bolts, 110'

Pitch 2:
Continue up the slab, clipping bolts, to an anchor 5.9 10 bolts, 110'

Pitch 3:
Climb up to the roof, clipping bolts, following them to the right of the roof, ending at a nice ledge. 5.8, 5 bolts, 50'

Pitch 4:
Follow the bolt line directly above the anchor, up and left clipping bolts, eventually reaching a section of chickenheads, anchor lies above. 5.8 11 bolts, 160'

1st Rap to P3 anchors on Ghosts of the Past
2nd Rap to P2 anchor on Ghosts of the Past
3rd Rap to P1 anchor on The Royal Scam
4th Rap to ground


From the ledge, start just right of a grassy corner, just to the left of the start of Strassman Memorial Buttress. Under a left facing corner/roof.


Many bolts, pro to 2"

Slab lovers dream! I only used supplemental gear on the last pitch, and I think only a nut and a .4 Camalot. It's only run out when it's really easy. Mar 24, 2018
Thanks arjunmh! I am rarely on here and it so funny to see my name on this website. I had such a great time climbing, exploring, getting scared, and then compiling it all. My goal was to do just what you said-get people on more great routes. Please let me know if you have any feedback on the routes and how I can make the books better please email me:cochiseclimbing.com. Hope you are enjoying the East Side book as much as the West.
