"Old Man's Popovers" 5.8 (referring to the NH state symbol / what chicken heads look like to me).

Begin in the center of the face at a small flake above a sloping ledge. The pitch climbs directly up the center of the face. Possible (and questionable) .75 behind flake. Climb 15' to a horizontal (crux at start) and a #1 Metolious TCU, climb ten more feet to a second horizontal and a .5 Camalot. Follow chickenheads (using slings for pro) to a third horizontal and a #1 Camalot before the topout move. Belay from trees.


The face between Where's Tom and Grandaddy's Delight. Begin at a right facing flake and climb straight up.


A little spicy at the start, be sure to have a good spot. Otherwise well protected.

See description for gear beta.
