Description

Short and Sweet! This is a fun climb that starts with smearing and mantling up a boulder, then up the tower full of honeycomb-looking shuteye chickenheads. Super fun climb, great for beginners and novice leaders. Could also be started from behind the boulder, but where's the fun in that? 60m rope ok on this one.

Location

This route is not pictured in the online guidebook but is fairly obvious given the plethora of shuteye chicken heads and that it looks like a tower with a face on it. You can find it on the South East corner just to the North of the routes pictured in the book

Protection

3-4 quick draws, long runner for the first bolt to reduce rope drag if starting on the ground. Two bolt anchor.
