Featured Route For Chicken Wall
Peter Dillon starting up Chicken Delight.

Chicken Delight 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Chicken Wall
This route is the leftmost route on the 'Chicken Wall' at 'The Clock Tower'. 7 bolts follow a face with pockets and crimpers to the anchors. The route can be eased by using the arete (a little dirty). I would place this route at the same grade as the route to the right, Rubber Chicken, somewhere around 5.10 c/d. Not quite as fluid as Rubber Chicken. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
