Description

This fun route features fantastic stemming and a steep hand crack corner. Begin from the same ledge as Green Knight though climb directly above the belay.

Be sure to stay wide on the stems and not get too sucked into the corner. The stem box pinches off to lower angle fingers and big finger dihedral that gradually steepens to hands. Once on the bird poo stained ledge, crank left to top out which just may ruffle your feathers.

Location

Green Knight and White Hawk are located near the center of the North Side. A faint bird poo stain marks the top of the light green pillar. Set back from the edge is a big dead, termite rotted tree.

Protection

Top anchor could consist of large cam or nuts and micro cams. Edge protection recommended. Belay from good ledge with small gear.

Rack: few small nuts, a few micro cams (offset handy), (2).3-.75C4, (1)1-3C4, 4C4 optional (unnecessary).
