Good climb with a bulge down lown to ledgy middle and a crux bulge in a lichen patch near the top. Rock is decent here. Generously bolted but lacks the springer shuts like every other climb in the Chicken Little area.


This is the route just to the right of Cruising for Chicks and left of Casada Noodle Soup.


7 (or 8?) bolts with reddish hangers to a two-bolt anchor with chain links.

The first bolt is in a contrived spot but the rest of the route is crimpy, continuous and fun. No Springers at the top like every other route at Cock's Comb, Maybe next time. Sep 20, 2007

Felt the first bolt was in a good spot, keeping you safe for the first crux through the bulge. Climbs a bit like most of the routes in this area with lots of crimps and a side pull here and there. Though I did not know at the time, I guessed this might be a Vaino route, as he has a signature style of route setting: camo bolt hangers and safely protected. Would be difficult to take any large whippers on one of his routes! Makes it great for one breaking into leading this grade! Apr 6, 2008

A good climb and worth doing. There is some dirty stuff but that will probably all come off in time.

Go give it a shot!

2 stars until the pebbles are all removed. Jul 5, 2008

The more I think about this route, the more I like it. The section below the first bolt is kind of annoying (if it weren't for how dirty the bottom is, the moves would be good), but once you get past it the fun begins. Feb 6, 2017
