Curt lichen his options at the start of the route.
Presumably the crag warm-up, providing sublime movement on stellar rock. This route faces a bit more north than all the others, so is the first route in the area to get shade.
Begin with sloping crimps on the slightly slabby, lichen-covered wall. At midheight several cool gas pockets appear and the difficulty eases.
The second route from the left in the "main" Poultry area. More licheny than the other routes here, and 1st route left of Stunt Cock
Bolts to quick-clip lowering anchor.
Making the clip just after the crux.

Another fun route at Coxcomb. Also one of the few "easier" climbs.
