Description

A pretty good pitch marred by the fact that there is chossy, easier climbing immediately next to both the intended start and finish. In between is some steep, airy jug-hauling with a hard, reachy move between the third and fourth bolt.

Location

On the upper left section of FT, about 10 meters left of Desert Storm. Do not approach via Fender Strat but instead scramble up 20M of 5.0ish terrain left and uphill of Forkash and Riches to a belay anchor. Baby Duck is the left of two pitches above this anchor.

Protection

6 bolts to cold shuts.

Awesome because we did the 10d Finger Food to get up to Baby Duck and Free Falling, which only gets one star but I thought it was pretty fun. You can do both while relaxing on a comfy belay ledge. Great to climb in the sun when everything else is greasy and it gets a great breeze up there too. Apr 11, 2010
