Flippin' the Bird

Description 

Flippin' the Bird climbs up two very detached/hollow sounding flakes to a fun mantel on a large chicken head on the thinnest part of the upper flake. From there continue to go up chicken heads slinging them as you go. Transition left to the flaring flake and gain the right diagonal crack which will lead you to the sling anchor above.

The name comes from the obvious rock formation above and the three rather large birds circling overhead waiting to pick our carcasses should the detached flakes not held.

Location 

Head left from Check the Technique and Separation Anxiety. See beta photo for for details.

Protection 

Standard Wasatch rack plus slings for chicken heads
