Climb pretty much anywhere on the slab after figuring out the first 15 feet, heading over to the dihedral formed by the headwall block on the left or staying on the chickenhead covered slab.


About 60 feet left of the Catacombs Walkdown. This line starts just right of the vertical headwall block above.


Sparse gear to 1", slings for chickenheads, 2 bolt anchor.

Get a good spot for the start. Once you are about to pull the lip onto the chickenhead slab, you should be able to sling a chickenhead out to your right for protection. The rest of the gear was slinging chickenheads or .3 to .75 cams. To just TR the route, walk west of the Catacombs and you can get to the bolted anchor (next to a 4" tree) very easily.

great route to solo. the 5.7 crux is off the ground and is unprotected anyway, then it is about 40 ft. of 5.3 above that to the bolted anchors.
