Description

Quackers is the rightmost route on the Ugly Duckling Boulder. The start, which is severely undercut (and worsening with erosion), is the crux of the climb. Timid leaders or those unable to reach the holds can traverse in from the left. Once up, enjoy the steep juggy face all the way to the chains, which actually kicks back and is slightly overhanging for the last few feet! This is one of the greatest aspects of climbing at the Enchanted Tower: where else can you get on overhanging 5.8?

Beware: Insanely hard start for the grade on this one. Apr 6, 2018
