Description

Easy climbing down low leads to nice face climbing past a few bolts to the top. A crack on the left offers easier climbing if you give in to temptation.

Location

Just left of the top of the approach trail. First route left of the nice 5.9 route, The Egg.

Protection

8 bolts to springed cold shuts.

Onsight this with whatever line(s) you want, then get back on it and climb the bolt line the entire way to the top. It's definitely a lot more fun, and a bit easier than Rooster Tail. Mar 8, 2017
The left anchor spins - could use a tighten-down. Rock seems fractured there, maybe the bolt ought to be replaced?
Fun route! Sep 13, 2009

An excellent route. It is incrementally harder than The Egg. For us The Egg comes first, followed by The Chicken, and then we are ready to tackle some of the other routes at the crag.

I don't remember if I used the crack, but I did wander quite a bit and I'm pretty sure it comes in at 5.10a or so. Or as my buddy claims 5.10a + Jul 5, 2008

As with other climbs in this area, the route is probably harder (10b?) if you stick to the face. Sep 14, 2007

Really fun moves with somewhat of an airy finish. Really enjoyable and, as always (thanks to Rick Bradshaw) well-bolted. Jul 2, 2007
