Jon on pitch 1


The name comes from the color that our elbows had turned after chicken-winging up the first pitch. This is a fun 2 pitch route that requires a wide range of techinque.

Locate the overhanging wideish crack/slot.

P-1 Climb the overhanging feature past some chicken wingin' and plenty of face holds to a ledge up and right. Belay on 2 bolts. Note: There is a newer mixed line that comes straight up to here for which these anchor bolts were recently placed by the main FA party of both routes.

P-2 Climb past 2 bolts up and right to the chimney/groove (out of sight from the ground). Cool OW and chimney tecnique gets you to the top of this feature.

Rap from tree on top to ground.


Starts in the middle of the cliff, above the right side of a ledge system.


Standard rack including big cams. Seems like we managed to get smaller pro in the chimney in spots and didn't need an extensive wide crack rack.
