Description

Birdman features great rock, a cool position, amazing movement, and a heartbreaking crux at the anchors.

Starting off a ledge, move up and left under a roof and commit to the steep wavy wall above. Consistently harder moves on pockets, pinches, and edges leads to a decent rest below the extended crux section. With you power fading, push past sculpted slopers, and pinches to a very unique finish in shallow scoop.

This may be one of the best 13a's in Colorado!

Also, for anyone allergic to bees, BEWARE, there is a huge bee hive on the roof to the right about 50 feet away.

Location

This route starts about 50 feet up on the left side of the main Puoux Wall. Look for a fixed line that leads to an belay anchor below the route. Rappel to get down.

Protection

Bolts and two anchors with chains. A 60 meter rope.

This is a huge little route! A great find by Andrew, who donated a lot of hardware and gear to make this route enjoyable. Apr 7, 2010

Looks like crap and you have to climb a fixed rope up 40 ft of choss to get to the base, but the rock and movement are both great, super fun! Mar 11, 2012

Oops!! Wrong climb I meant Birdman. This climb is pretty good too, except for the bat poop, bat poop is yucky. Apr 28, 2013
Pulled off this gear from the first bolt in the choss! Hit me up if you want this garbage back.
