Chicken dinner is a route that stops halfway and is comprised of huge moves on many drilled pockets in a steep permadrawed section of the cave. Unrelenting moves on drilled jugs, pockets, and edges lead to not-very-difficult crux moves before a final redpoint crux below the yellow rock in the cave. The route finishes at the 8th bolt. From here continuing onto the headwall it becomes chicken Choker (left, stays at about 13a) or Yellow Man (straight up, 13b)

Didn't feel like there was anything harder than maybe V3 on the whole, the challenge comes from linking it all together.


starts the same as tractor boy but immediately goes straight up instead of out right.


all fixed draws

Some consider Chicken Dinner to finish at the ninth bolt, in a large hole just beneath the roof. According to Sandy Epeldi's guidebook, there used to be an intermediate anchor here. Either way, the last bolt of climbing is mostly a jug haul. Jun 17, 2018
