The fun part on Chunk

Description 

Starts just to the right of Chunk with the large block about 5 feet up.

  • If you knock on the "Chunk" it does has a hollow sound, I have jumped on it pretty hard and it hasn't come of however be warned and assess the risk yourself as it does sound like it will come off one day. Have your belayer stand accordingly.


Protection 

There are a set of hangers up top that are fairly safe and easy to access. I had a tough time deciding where to place these so as they sit there is some rope drag to deal with. I wanted to avoid using any chains here however next time I'm there I plan to replace the hanger with chains to avoid any wear on draws/slings.

Solid place to play around with some balance oriented moves pretty safely on top rope. Really gritty surface if you have any tactile woes.
