DescriptionA slabby start leads to a long stretch of excellent chicken heads as you work your way around the corner and up the south face. Enjoy the fantastic view and easy 5.3-5.4 finish as you summit Hawk Tower.
LocationLocated on the far right side of the west face of Hawk Tower. The approach can be heinous if you stray from the standard "path" (an easy thing to do), but the quality of the route makes up for it.
ProtectionWidely spaced bolts and good gear placements lead to two anchors with a chain. A second rappel station is located halfway down for those with shorter ropes, but a 70m should get you all the way to the ground in one rap.
Bring draws, gear to 2" or 3", and even a few slings for the chicken heads. Extend some of the earlier bolts to avoid excessive rope drag.
