Description [Suggest Change]

The name comes from the color that our elbows had turned after chicken-winging up the first pitch. This is a fun 2 pitch route that requires a wide range of techinque.

Locate the overhanging wideish crack/slot.

P-1 Climb the overhanging feature past some chicken wingin' and plenty of face holds to a ledge up and right. Belay on 2 bolts. Note: There is a newer mixed line that comes straight up to here for which these anchor bolts were recently placed by the main FA party of both routes.

P-2 Climb past 2 bolts up and right to the chimney/groove (out of sight from the ground). Cool OW and chimney tecnique gets you to the top of this feature.

Rap from tree on top to ground.

Location [Suggest Change]

Starts in the middle of the cliff, above the right side of a ledge system.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Standard rack including big cams. Seems like we managed to get smaller pro in the chimney in spots and didn't need an extensive wide crack rack.
