This is the longest route at The Wood. It is located to the left of the huge roof. Start in a left-facing corner and angle out right over a little roof. The rest of the line stays right of the gully. The crux comes at the last bolt with a blind left hand pull over to the final slab and the chains.


Eight bolts to a set of chains.

The first time I climbed this route eight years ago, my friends and I discovered a golder eagle nest on the ledge half way up the route. Mama eagle, with her six-foot wing span, dive-bombed us as we hurried passed to avoid the nest full of tiny white eaglets. Since then we have all avoided this climb. I'm assuming that due to the high traffic these days the eagles have gone away. Nevertheless, I would recommend checking it out before getting pecked to death.

No eagles when I did the route. I did see evidence of some large bird, but I bet it was a vulture, I guess hence the name. Thought the last move was pretty stout for 11a, but I just may be out of shape.

In all the years we hung out there, I've seen all sorts of critters but never any sort of eagles. Turkey vultures are abundant. Regarding the grade, C-wood has its own techniques; the ability to sort of "guess" where a useable feature may be the most useful. As I remember, this route has a hidden sidepull for the left hand just below the anchors.
