Description 

Chocolate Stain follows the intimidating brown stain in the middle of the wall. A very powerful route despite how short it is.

Start under the brown stain on the assortment of pockets tat just seem a little bit too small. Bouldery moves take you to the flake that marks the beginning of the stain. The flake seems questionable but has seen a lot of abuse and still stands strong. Powerful and long moves take you through the stain and leave you under the overhang. The typical slopers that are all too common at the tops of these routes are the last chance for the route to pump you out.

Once you get to the top, turn around and soak in one of the best views in High Cliff that only the select few climbers get to enjoy.
