Located on 'The Chicken Wall' of the 'Clock Tower', this is just right of "Chicken Hawk". This is the longest route on the wall and gives a couple cruxes. Watch out for the bat shit/piss before pulling the roof at the top. A key hold can be found for reaching the anchors by reaching around the right arete to a large jug. It is a decent route (a little dirty) with many different types of moves. 2 stars.


7 bolts - 2 bolt anchor.

I'm no Sharma, but 5.9 is closer to reality. Mar 7, 2002
A decent route -- be careful clipping the second bolt! I "barn-doored" off the wall while trying to get in a better position to the right of this bolt to clip it --- I was flipped over head-first because of the rope running under my leg and came within 1 foot of hitting my head on the ground...close call!!

The next day I went and bought a helmet! Aug 8, 2002

5.9??? Oh my god, Leo???

This is the one route at the cliff that I thought was hard at its grade and my partner agreed. I thought 11a.

Would be a decent route if it were not for the guano up high- a nasty lot of it when wet too- where are my arm-condums (TM)??? May 29, 2008

Climbing on first half is OK, but bolts are placed to the right which makes route finding less obvious. The second half is contrived and poorly bolted. An attentive belayer is necessary to avoid a ledge fall on the upper half; 2 ways to pull the roof - I thought the right option better. Jul 8, 2013
