Chalking up in the wrong spot: The good hold is tw...


This route features thin crimping and technical moves. It is sustained, although it gets slightly easier the higher you get. The rock quality could be better and some holds might change their shape if this route sees more traffic.

Clip the first bolt from the big undercling, before you actually get on the wall. Getting situated on the wall is probably the crux. The holds are small and sharp. Once on the wall, get the second clip and pick the right sequence to get to slightly easier terrain about half way up the wall. To pass the third and fourth bolt good reach and high stepping are helpful.


This route is on the east face of Chester Rock. When approaching from the east, Chester Rock is hidden behind Roses are Red Crag.


4 bolts, rap anchors.

Felt like the crux was getting off the ground. Be careful at when clipping at the second clip, some of the pieces felt hollow.
