Chickenhead wall, as seen from the top of Poison I...

Description 

This is the low-angled slab with jugs all over behind the massive boulder. This is often used as a walkout area by confident climbers. This area also covers routes extending past the large cave and all the way to the Reality Wall.

Getting There 

The best way to approach the Chickenhead Wall is from above. At the entrance to the parking lot, go left and through the gate. At the end of the gravel drive, there is a circle drive. Find the trail heading in the same general direction as the road. It leads to a clearing where the East and West Main Bluffs converge.

The rap is located to the right, above the West Main Bluff. To access it, you have to drop down about 5 feet to a ledge where the bolts are located.

Once at the bottom, hike left around the corner and into the tunnel area between the Chickenhead Wall and the huge boulder.

Climbing Season

For the East Main Bluff area.

One of the best moderate sport routes at Sam'sBegin on section of rather crumbly rock until you reach a steep headwall. From here a fun v1 boulder sequence gets you through the crux and onward to chicken head bashing up top.The route used to have a fun little run out at the top but has since been retro bolted and is completely safe.
