Checkerboard Wall  Sucess!

With JC from Flagstaff. Not a great route in my opinion, overrated compared to the hype on Mountain Project. The FAer admits to never repeating the route. The first two pitches are uneventful. The 3rd pitch has a cool roof pull but then mostly involves face climbing past a fixed pin. The 4th pitch is pretty dam good though, stemming up a corner and pulling out of it on neat facial moves. But it stops at a hanging belay and the 5th pitch is somewhat contrived, passing several pins, a hangerless bolt that probably should have stayed (except for egos) and finishes on choss.
