This route is on Hen and Chicken Rock, a 100 foot high, satellite crag that rests at the SE corner of the East Owl.

Take the appraoch trail that branches left about 1/4 mile up the Gem Lake Trail; it leads directly to the buttress' base. Identify a large, clean left-facing corner (Cackle Crack). Rhode Island Red starts in a thin seam on the arete right of the corner (scary crux, RPs), then follows a good 5.9 hand crack across the wall to merge with Cackle Crack at the top of the corner.


Rack to a #3 Friend; bring RPs for the start.
