Description Suggest change

At the end of Snake Eyes Wall, the wash makes a hard right then bends back left to the First Waterfall (also known as The Waterfall). Chicken Leg Area is everything to the right on the outside of this bend, from the low-angle rock across from Snake Eyes over to behind the large boulders out of the wash at the Death Couloir (the large gully on the right). Chicken Leg got its name from the drumstick feature next to the main crack. The easiest way up or down is the low-angle 5.0 tiny buttress across from Snake Eyes, but another access to the top of this cliff is up the 4th class/5.0 broken ramp that goes under A Might Fright. All of the climbs can be top roped with gear and long slings; there aren't any bolted anchors.

Getting There Suggest change

Go up the canyon past the steps 200' till the wash jogs right.
