Description

Cuckoo's Nest is very short, but it contains some fun climbing. Worth doing if you happen to be up there.

Start by stick clipping the first bolt if you can otherwise make you way up to a good edge stemming your feet to get to the first bolt. Then the crux, Keep walking the feet up in to a good stem. A small Gaston on the left wall might be helpful, reach up to a good layback/fingerlock slot. A big undercling and a big move left will get you to the top.

Location

At the far right end of the cliff. The only route with 2 bolts.

Protection

2 bolts to anchors.

5.10d? Really? No way, Jose. I was completely stymied by this one. What's the trick? Aug 1, 2017
