Chalk Therapy is located in between Wherever I May Roam and Cod Rock and just uphill from Chalk Wave. Be careful where you tread, the trail heading up to Chalk Therapy is fragile.
While rated 5.10b, there is only a short section of business to maneuver through, the rest of the climb is straightforward on big holds. Start by pulling through on large holds up to flat section beneath what look like caked-mud pockets where you'll be standing on some dirt. I wouldn't recommend cranking on the mud looking pockets. Move onto the face over the small arete and use crimps to work through the crux sequence. From there big holds and easy climbing lead up to a two-bolted anchor.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
