this route is number 38 in your guide book.when we first did this route,my buddy rappelled down,and heard a loud hissing noise coming from the cave right below the climb,turns out it was a injured turkey vulture trying to scare us away.Start right under the overhang and continue up the crack to top.


Tricky lead,butt possible maybe small to medium stoppers,and cams.Top rope use cord or webbing to 25 feet or three small pieces of webbing.small and medium cams or hexs.picture perfect top rope setup.

Not much for pro in the last 8ft, a fall would be a bad idea. Jun 17, 2011

"Hissing Vulture" is a great little lead. It starts out with a crafty little V0 boulder problem to gain the left leaning crack rail system where great gear is to be found. The starting moves can be protected in a way by placing gear into the overhanging portion of the start of the crack itself but it is probably better to just get spotted for the entrance moves. Above the rail is a neat but short corner with tricky moves. It all finishes with neat little edges over the top with skinny gear. Fun! Gear from finger sized stoppers to mid cams. Little brassies over the top. May 17, 2011
