Tamara walking through the increasingly steep face...


This fun climb begins with a short slab that leads to a big-ish roof, and finishes with a so-so dihedral. Begin in a broad corner, passing a seemingly unnecessary bolt to a good stance below the roof. Clip up high and left, then ascend directly over the roof (perhaps just a bit rightwards) on killer-good jugs and maybe a heel-hook.

Ascend the arete left of the dihedral for a few bolts before veering right into the ever-steepening dihedral. Dwindling holds and a building pump lead to the anchor.


Immediately right of Stunt Cock, immediately left of Cock a Doodle Do.


Bolts, 2 quick-link BA

This, and Chicks with Ricks, were in my opinion the best of their grade at the Cockscomb crag. With all the crimping and side pulling, these two routes offer some diversity in movement.

Watch the crux at the top, it's certainly a thinker.

Well Anthony I'd love to see your beta for the top some day.... I guess we figured it out, but hey maybe you have a better plan than I!

A great route and well worth the hike.

Sorry Robbin... Wish I could help you but that was like, two months ago! Much to long ago for me to remember the moves!

Well I must admit that figuring it out for myself will be a more beneficial experience in the long run anyway. Happy climbing!
