Dave Stephens sampling Chicken Spread


Double check all of your bolts before you clip them. There are a couple of old rusty nasty bolts that aren't of any use to you and should be chopped.

The crux is about 1/2 way up the wall, before you go over the lip.

Bring your garden shears, to get to the anchors you have to climb over a rose bush. Don't whip on the last bit or you will have the afore mentioned rose bush giving you an enema.



Start just left of the 8 foot tall granite spire that is next to the slimy 'waterfall' that is running down from the water tower above.


Bolts, a bunch of them.

Just a heads up, someone chopped down the rosebush, as of 11/15/08, but now the 'small trickle' of water to the right of the route has grown and the crux is pretty wet and slimy.

The crux is no longer slimy- nice and dry.
