Description

Fun route starting in the right leaning crack on the east face of the Coop. Start on The Last Chicken, clipping it's first bolt, continue on moderate terrain in the prominent crack to a ledge. Continue up the north face, pulling an airy bulge. Finish up the crack system on the northeast arete.

This is a very fun climb. Casual climbing in the beginning leads to the exposed crux bulge. Three well-thought-out bolts (nice work Marcy) take you through the bulge and lead you to a super-fun, exposed arete with a great crack for pro.

The FA was done ground up without the bolts. Marcy led up through the bulge several times looking for adequate pro, and skillfully downclimbed to the stance below the bulge rather than taking on her onsight FA attempt. After we completed the climb ground up, we added a few bolts to protect the runout and potential fall to the ledge. Dec 7, 2009

The bulge is much fun, great eye Marcy! A good prep for "The Hatch" bulge moves that are trad protected and similar in feel to this one. Feb 7, 2010
