Description

Flightless Bird starts relatively easily and leads to a roof crux with difficult-to-see holds. After pulling the roof, climb the dihedral with good left feet but poor right footholds. Finish at anchor well below the actual top. An anchor can be reached for top roping by rappelling from the juniper at the cliff's top.

Location

Ascend the obvious, right-facing dihedral directly to the right of the protruding buttress which is on the left skyline as you approach.

Protection

8 bolts.
