Description

Take the first three pitchs of Birds of Prey. Chicken Hawk starts up the obvious finger crack from the top of the third pitch of BOP. Pitches are as follows:

4. 5.11c. 15m. Face climb past a bolt until it is possible to mantle onto a stance at the base of the beautiful, short splitter. Crank up the well spaced but positive tips pods with half decent feet most of the way. A super fun pitch!

5. 5.11a. 25m. Climb the right trending ramp past a bolt to gain the obvious left facing corner, the technical stemming culminates with an exhilarating crux sequence.

6. 5.10d. 10m. Pinch up a shallow offset crack into an arching feature, a final, tricky mantle gains the summit.

Protection

Single set of cams from tips to #2 BD, small wires, and few extra small cams may be useful.

Super fun route. Definitely felt the first pitch was soft at 11c and probably closer to 11 a/b with the second 11 pitch being closer to 11b. You rap the route with a single 70m Jul 8, 2017

Great variation to B.O.P. I felt the grading was pretty spot on... the crux trying not to fill the good pods with gear on the splitter. A little kitty litter for the feet but with more traffic is bound to become another Squamish Classic!
The 11a pitch was super fun and exciting top out
