Follow the obvious weakness of flaky cracks between the two sets of bolts, and enjoy a nice mix of jamming, mild laybacking, and face climbing on cool features.


This is a trad route that follows wandering cracks between the bolted lines of Funky Chicken and Beaks and Feet. It shares an anchor with Beaks and Feet and Bart's Route and is a fun lap on toprope after leading either of those.


Standard rack with emphasis on hand to fist-sized pieces.

I first climbed this route in the Summer of 2009, shortly after the bolted lines were put in. I'm not sure if it was a first ascent, but the other folks who frequented this in 2008 weren't hauling in their trad gear.
