A nice, mellow route for a first lead or beginner toprope. Route is a leaning hand crack running up a right facing dihedral immediately left of a wide OW and a "reptillian" face. Great protection in the crack and numerous face holds allow for crack climbing, stemming, or a combination of the two. Set up a TR anchor on the broad ledge or walk off to climber's left.


Follow the rough trail to the Leftovers go as far left (west) as possible before the the ridge dissolves in to random large boulders. Route is left of Captain Fist and Prime Rib.


Like any good beginner lead, the hand crack takes as much pro as you can carry. Small/medium cams and nuts are optimal. Large cams can be used up high where the chimney narrows to about 4".

Chicken Legs is the crack-to-bulgy-slab route left of Reptillian Wall (with climber).  Left and Right variations are possible on the slab.  The right appears slightly harder than the left.

Easier than the other 5.6s at the Leftovers, seeming more like 5.5. But good fun anyway.
