Description 

Just right of the wide crack/chimney of Chuckwalla, is a fun little face climb. Start at the lieback flake just right of the Chuckwalla slot, or a little farther right (as for Belly Flop). It's contrived, so there isn't an exact rule for the start, but the thin face near the top is quite fun, which has a few thin moves between one- and two-finger pockets.

This is unnamed climb #22 in the online guides, but at least one Potrillo climber has referred to it as Chuckwalla Right which is more descriptive and better than another anonymous climb.

I didn't think it was as tough as .10c in White Rock should be (it's rated .10c in the guides).

Protection 

Toprope from an anchor as set for Chuckwalla. Or if you're bold, lead with gear, mainly smaller stuff.
