Description 

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.

Location 

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)

Protection 

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.

Dos this happen to be the face above the hand crack cave? I've always thought it would be pretty proud to climb out the hand crack, pull the lip and then transition to the face. Never gotten around to it but I've seen the pin up high and always wondered!?
