Comments: Nice shady pitch for a hot day. Full value! About 180' total. I dragged up big cams for the anchor and ended up not using them, finding it much more comfortable to belay off small to medium cams and Tricams in the horizontal above the ledge.

We refreshed the rappel webbing. One 60m rope just makes it.

Comments: Wonderful climb. The walk-off only adds to the experience, as it navigates easily through some very unlikely-looking terrain.

Comments: Very nice climbing. Apparently it has cleaned up a bit, as we had no issues with rock quality. An esthetic way to reach Chocolate Tranquility Fountain.

Comments: Six hundred feet of perfect finger to hand crack in a low-angle stemming corner; what's not to like? After an awkward move or two right off the starting ledge, it's pretty much cruiser alpine-low-fifth the whole way. We took a minimal rack and a single 60m X 8.5mm rope (tying in with bowlines-on-coils to eliminate harnesses), and climbed in approach shoes, all of which seemed pretty appropriate for the level of difficulty.

We approached via the north fork of Pine Creek Canyon, follo... more >>

Comments: The rap station on the tree is in good shape, with two screw links and fresh webbing. That is one sappy pine tree, though!

Comments: Excellent little climb. In terms of technical difficulty, it's barely fifth class, but pretty much ideal as a training opportunity for a new climber to lead on gear -- clean, featured, lots of protection options.

When approaching the crag, it's worth going a bit further up the road (or the wash) to get a straight-on view. The line of the climb is pretty obvious from that perspective, whereas it's a bit hard to see from the base, or from the left when the crag is first visible.

Comments: We started up Chocolate Sunday and joined the upper pitches. Really fun climbing; if the rock quality were just a bit better, this would be a four-star classic.
