Description 

From the bolted belay over Hawk's Neck and Hawk's Nest pitch 1, climb up the roof past an old piton. Above it you'll have 15 to 20 feet of runout before the next pro, with a ledge close below. Climb carefully. This seems to be the variation done on the first ascent of Hawk's Nest. It's the purple line in the route photo.


Location 

On top of Hawk's Neck, in the middle of High Rocks.


Protection 

Pretty good to slim, with a runout section. Standard rack. A 4" cam would be quite secure after the runout.

A pair of distinctive Stover Brand bolted chains at the top to anchor, belay, or rappel off.
