Steel Feathers climbs the steep wall equipped with several well-spaced bolts (3rd hanger is missing) directly to the left of "Hush Mama Thrush".

A bouldery start gains a nice series of flakes, a high-step off a frighteningly hollow flake leads to several hard and balancy moves above the hanger-less bolt. Gain a "thank god" flake/ledge, mantel, then either continue straight up (minimal gear, and 2 more bolts), or move right to join with the upper section of "Hush". Though following the last couple of bolts and sparse gear keeps the route independent, stepping right to join HMT is equally (if not a better option!) nice.

The route ends at 2 bolts shared with HMT.


10 feet to the left of "Hush Mama Thrush"


5 bolts, plus finger-size gear. Note that the gear above the fourth bolt is minimal, at best. It is a better option to step right and finish up "Hush Mama Thrush".
