Access Issue: Portions of Mt. Elden are closed for Forest Thinning Details
As part of a massive forest thinning project portions of Mt. Elden are closed to entry. Currently access to West Elden is closed.
I'm adding this route because some people have asked me about it in the past. It is a short little thing and was quite scary to lead on the FA. My guess is that it is 5.11. It is a pretty little face but too tall for a highball so I lead it.
This route is on the far N end of Uptown on a small S. facing face. It can be recognized by a left slanting seem on the flat face. There is a drilled baby angle on the bulge near the top. (or there was 30 years ago when I did the FA)
Pro is tiny wires in the seam and when I did the FA I used a knife blade piton in the middle of the seam. The drilled pro near the top turned out to be unnecessary since the move above was only about 5.7 but I put this up ground up and didn't know what was coming. That's why I called it Chicken Fixin's.
