  • Description 

    Big Bird is an excellent adventure route. It starts at the toe of the Sesame Street Buttress via an improbable but do able off width/squeeze chimney. From here route wanders up and left to amazing crack in a large right facing alcove. When this ends climb steep face up and left one BL to surmount top of buttress.

    Location 

    Cougar Crag West.

    Protection 

    Standard rack. Bolted anchor atop buttress.
