Description 

The first pitch of Hawk's Nest is a fun, quality climb for its grade and location. Climb up a dihedral to a ceiling, and traverse left a short distance to its end. From there, follow a crack straight up, and traverse left along a ledge to a bolted belay directly over Hawk's Neck (if you don't see it at first, look on the left/far side of a rock protrusion - then there's no missing it).

"The opening moves often have wet feet. These can be bypassed and protected, but it ups the ante a little bit. After the seep, it's the best gear and best climb of it's grade at Stover." [-Larry S]

Three variations for the section pitch wait above.

Both pitches can also be combined into one pitch with a 60 m rope.


Location 

Hawk's Nest starts right off the belay trail, at a vertical open book to the right of Welcome to Stover/Hawk's Neck, and left of Marty Broke It. The adventurous can get off the first pitch with a class 4 traverse to the west and downclimb of a dirty gully; otherwise, rappel off.


Protection 

The first pitch is easy to protect, the second is not. A toprope anchor set from the bolts on top of the first pitch can produce a swing, remedy this with a cam or two to extend the rope to the right.
