Very fun, moderate traditional line. Start in the left most crack system on the east face of The Coop. Continue in the crack, placing a wide range of stoppers and cams to the crux ~2/3 the way up. Step left toward the wide slot near the top. Belay at summit. Rappel The Last Chicken (single 60m).

I loved this completely trad route-fun placing gear the whole way. This is a good one to start with, then continue to the other routes on the right. Nice!

I thought this was a solid 8+ because the more you look around , the more there is and when the handholds get thin the feet are solid.

A fine intro to climbing at LDE, as it was my first in the area. Lots to hang onto, placements straight forward, and the usual nice views at the top. Thanks a bunch!
