DescriptionStarting out a bit overhanging, pulling thru good holds to the face, you may find the beginning of this route to be a bit cruxy, but 5.7 seems to be a popular consensus rating. Once on the vertical face continue up thru many large "turkey heads" (O.K. chicken heads, but this route was bolted and got it's First Ascent on Thanksgiving Day, 1999). The last couple moves are a bit smaller and finish the route off at a consistent grade.
LocationOne route to the right of Spring Kitten, this is the very featured line in the middle of the South face. The start is located below a small roof heading up out onto a vertical face.
Lower off anchors, or hike off/downclimb the North side.
