The right-facing dihedral/slab with 2 bolts to the right of Daffy's Shaft. Start the climb up a small ramp to gain the corner. Touchy climbing up a lie-back crack turns right towards a bolt and up a dirty flare. Finish up an overlap with a small crack. End on a comfortable ledge on top of the buttress. Walk to the right and descend using the Duck A L'Orange anchors

Good and mostly adequate protection, expect a little space between gear. The R-rating is debatable.


Walking the Duck has two bolts and takes a single set of gear and stoppers up to four inches. A 70 meter gets you close to the ground and a 60 meter rope allows for some down-climbing.
