DescriptionThe first pitch of Hawk's Nest is a fun, quality climb for its grade and location. Climb up a dihedral to a ceiling, and traverse left a short distance to its end. From there, follow a crack straight up, and traverse left along a ledge to a bolted belay directly over Hawk's Neck (if you don't see it at first, look on the left/far side of a rock protrusion - then there's no missing it).
"The opening moves often have wet feet. These can be bypassed and protected, but it ups the ante a little bit. After the seep, it's the best gear and best climb of it's grade at Stover." [-Larry S]
Three variations for the section pitch wait above.
Both pitches can also be combined into one pitch with a 60 m rope.
