Fighting the pump clock on "Amarillo By Morning."

Description 

"Amarillo by Morning" ascends the steep wall 30 ft. left of "Endymion." To reach the base, traverse the low angle slab or scramble up between the low angle slab and the brush on the southwest side of The Chicken to a sandy belay nook. Climb the low angle apron on knobs and inclusions. As the wall steepens a line of stellar, but spaced pockets appear along with cobbles and inclusions. Pull the bulge on awesome pockets and knobs. Continue up the lower angle slab and pockets to the anchor.


Location 

On the southwest face of the Chicken (aka Hyperion Slab). 30 ft. left (west) of Endymion. Wander up the lower angle slab on the southwest side of Hyperion Slab to a sandy belay, where bushes and snags block further progress.


Protection 

8 bolts & 2-ring Fixe anchor.

A great two star route. All the moves are there when you find them. Due to the sustain and overhanging nature, a warning to the leader, this might be harder then 5.10a/b. Enjoy

"Amarillo by Morning" has an intricate sequence that makes onsighting difficult due to the steepness, shy pockets, and pumpy nature of the route.
