Route got its name because it looks like the rock halfway up will be choss, but it is actually surprisingly solid.

Make a stretchy move to get off the ground, and then climb the face on pretty enjoyable movements to a nice top out.


This climb is located on an outcropping about 30 feet west of the main red bird area and before the bulge.


Nuts and small cams but difficult to find decent placements.
