Wessel in the Chicken Coop 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Chicken Wall
This route is the farthest right route on Chicken Wall, starting by 2 huge old industrial bolts. The climbing is rather forgettable with easy clips from good stances. Most of the good holds are hidden until you're right on top of them. I also found myself zig-zagging to the left and right of the bolt line to reach these holds. Beware the rope drag if you plan on setting up a top rope. Not much more to it, an average 5.9 in my opinion (not that that means much)....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
