Poultry Pillar from below Drumstick Direct (5.8 - ...

Description 

Stay to the right of the notch as you ascend, guidebook describes a ramp - I found it easier to just take the path of least resistance up to the notch. The climbing down low is very easy and doesn't warrant pro. When you get to the notch sling a knob and enjoy the views as you scamper to the top.

Location 

There is a nice flat spot in a corner for the belayer, protected from the wind and afternoon sun. Good, easy fun route to do in the afternoon if things are getting a bit warm.

Protection 

I used a purple Camalot and I believe a yellow alien, ran it out pretty much to the notch. Two solid anchors at the top.
