Description:

Once you get to the Balrog corner you will notice a smooth slab that is a step down from the Chockstone Corner start, scramble up this until you see to crack systems above you the route is the left hand one. Very awsom climbing with good pro for the most part, a 10a climber will find it diffcult

3 out of 5 stars Chockstone Corner Direct

Good outing with Tara. I made 9 pitches into 5 with a 70m and prefer that sequence. The 8th pitch chimney was the crux due to its condition (muddy) vs the first pitch which was given a 5.10a grade, but I thought it was soft for a 5.10. The very last chimney was sporty and fun.
