Description

Well bolted beginner route with a non traditional start move. Side pulls, under clings, lay backs.
A little background: on my forays up to Cooper Spur I would call out to what I thought was an owl hooting at me; four hoots and I would respond with four, this would go on until I couldn't hear anymore 1/2mi or more away. Turns out it was a Blue Grouse and it is their mating call; no wonder they kept up so long!

Location

On the same column as Felsschlüpfer just to climbers right.

Protection

11bolts with Mussey Hook anchor.

Let me know what you think of the grade I have not been climbing much lately so I am not a good judge. Thanks, Walter. Jul 2, 2016

5.9 - only because of the beginning (not straightforward 5.7 moves) and the end. The middle is more like a hard 5.8. Aug 26, 2016

I'm going to agree with 5.9. 80% of the moves are probably 5.8, with just a few that are a little trickier. This climb is a great easier lead route or warm up - very consistent climbing with good flow to shake off the unpleasant hike up to the wall. Very well cleaned for a Klinger route, let alone a new route. May 28, 2017

Thanks, I tend to clean well, I weigh in over 200 so I make sure holds can take it. Jun 14, 2017

I found this to be an enjoyable route. Nothing particularly challenging, just consistent climbing with lots of bolts and a great view at the anchors. Jun 26, 2017
