Description 

Located on 'The Chicken Wall' of the 'Clock Tower'. Deceptive looking route, which will surprise many people. 4th line from the left, 5th line from the right on this lower wall. Climb easier terrain until the 3rd & 4th bolts where body position will be the key, a great onsight to figure out, drop your weight to the left and use the 1 finger or the sidepull found in a small obvious seam, crank to the lip and pull down. Have fun, a great line.

Protection 

6 bolts - 2 bolt anchor

Great little slab line. Intriguing to figure it out onsight. Packs a punch for its brevity.

Agree. Very deceptive little line. Looks like a walk from below, but really had me wondering around the 3rd clip (no guidebook). Turned out to be good suprises though...not a bad climb.

This was a deceptive climb. Lots of shifting your weight. Can be pumpy if your not sure of the moves.
