Very nice arete climb on left side of Chicken Little area. Cruxy thin moves for the first two or three bolts before it lets off a bit. Nice no-hands rest on easy, blocky section in the middle before the business starts up again.


Route is on the left side of the Chicken Little area just left of the 5.10c route, Cruising for Chicks. Chains with carabiners at the top make for easy, safe lowering.


8 bolts to chains with carabiners.

A fairly crucial hold broke off a few years ago making the start sequence more difficult, which may make the 11d rating seem/be a letter grade low. It's still good fun, just a bit harder on the ego...
