Get all Chester with it!

Overhung and Tasty! Go ahead! Make an Ass of Yourself. 

If you're not strong enough, smart enough or good enough to be the Judge, Jury and Executioner...then you can always be the Court Chester. If you have successfully taken down Badgering the Witness then here is your next challenge. Court Chester is one of the better routes in its genre of awesome climbs that may have a section of rock that might initially be miserable if the holds are moist or you just don't use them correctly. And unfortunately, Chester's not so tasty section is right at the beginning. However, its over quick and the rest of the climbing is sick!

This is a pretty damn fun route if you love sequential action that requires lay backing, stemming, matching, finger-locking and burly physical movement that also requires finesse. The secret to the send lies in sticking a left foot into an ass-like cleft just perfectly. Ends with a killer finish, high above the last bolt, that just might just send beginning five eleven climbers into a laughing fit. Fun in a funny way since it might take a few goes before the sick, juggy holds on the vast majority of great stone becomes apparent. Definitely 5.11b with some practice.

Freakishly fun and fantastically physical in a full value kind of way! I highly recommend you get on it and get challenged.


Nineth rought from the left hand side of the crag. Starts left of Executioner's big ass flake.


7 bolts. 3rd bolt has a permadraw. Sail through a pumpy crux at the beginning by stick clipping second bolt.
