Description

This is located on 'The Chicken Wall' of the 'Clock Tower'. Locate this route by walking uphill (left) to the second last set of bolts, just uphill past a dirty corner/groove system. Climb the face with sloping holds on great feet, past 7 bolts to the anchor, may be a little reachy for some but overall quite an enjoyable route.

Protection

7 bolts - 2 bolt anchor.

Crimpy sloapers and delicate footwork kept this one interesting from bottom to top. Indeed fun! Nov 3, 2015
Gets your heart pumping, for sure. Dec 31, 2012

This is a very enjoyable climb! The line is not obvious and it has some nice, fluid and balancey moves. Apr 8, 2012

Such an attractive wall. Nice, steep line with great holds. Both routes are intelligently bolted. Led both today. I think this one is slightly easier than Delight. But I agree this is a better quality climb. Great holds and a little more straightforward than Delight. Do them both when visiting. Sep 4, 2010

Very fun. I found there to be a committing crux about halfway up. Wasn't sure if I would peel off when I made the move. Cool friction foot moves. Jun 27, 2010

Definitely worth the climb. WAY better than chicken delight. I found it easier in the sense that the moves were more fluid, harder in the sense that it is more technical. More tricky short moves = more fun in my opinion. Sep 2, 2009

This route is balancey, interesting, and fun. I didn't find it particularly reachy, and I'm 5'5". Jun 23, 2007

This is an excellent pitch; one of the best sport 10s I've done in Boulder Canyon. Sustained and interesting from bottom to top. Jun 19, 2006
I agree with the above comment. Its more sustained, fluid, and enoyable. i don't think any one move was harder than the crux on Chicken Delight, though the overall sequence was tricky. Footwork and balance was the key. Good route. Oct 15, 2002
Definitely more fluid and fun than the route to its left, Chicken Delight. Both are worth doing, though. Mar 25, 2002
