DescriptionThis route climbs the prominent tower seen on the skyline during the approach. The name comes from the duck head-shaped block, atop the tower, when seen from the east. Pitch one is fun face and crack climbing. The second pitch ascends the tower itself with some tricky balance moves.
P1. 5.8. Climb to the bolt below the crack, and make a tricky move getting into the crack. Continue up the crack to the large ledge and a trad anchor.
P2. 5.10a. Ascend the rib at the back of the ledge past a bolt, then go up blocky terrain to the southeast corner of the tower. Move up to the prominent stance, then balance up past a bolt to the anchors. Traverse right from the anchors and ascend to the summit where a bolt allows you to relax and enjoy the view.
To descend, downclimb to the anchors and rappel to anchors on Cam-ouflage.
