The Chessapeak Wall
, which is the south face of the Pawn, contains ten routes ranging from 5.6 to 5.10-. A number of the routes are traditional or mixed. Additional routes such as Hour of Power
and The Phalanx
are in the vicinity.
The routes at the Chessapeak Wall
were primarily established by Andy Tretiakoff and Charlie King. The Chessapeak Wall
faces south and thus sees sun almost all day.

Disembark and hike straight up the rocky drainage for approximately 15 minutes. The strenuous hike involves a small amount of scrambling but is over soon enough.
Follow the uphill, left branch when the trail forks near the base of the cliff. Gain a slight bit of elevation and wind through a few shrubs, continuing left past the Queen
and sector. A faint trail will break from the cliff, heading left and holding elevation. The entire hike will take approximately 25 minutes.
