At the crux.


Slingin' the Chicken is 5.9. It has 6 bolts and 2 single ring anchors.

Per Thomas Cuthbert: this is a route up the left side of the rock with fun foot work, the crux is at the top.


This is on the left side of this small crag. It has a fun mini-roof to anchors.

Per Thomas Cuthbert: it is the leftmost bolted climb of the three routes.


6 bolts.

Fun climb. Moves up to and over the mini roof make you think it's harder than it is. Good holds all the way.

This climb, along with the 5.7 to the right, are missing all the hangers. Bolts and nuts are in place, but someone has removed all the hangers as of July 4th weekend 2011.

The hangers have been replaced. Only saw one on the 5.7/8 to the right that had no hanger.

Great little climb, going up the middle face you can either keep left with bolt or head right which was a bit easier, but it makes for difficult clips.
