BETA PHOTO: Spring Chicken


Start on a slight overhang with not best holds. Follow a tough sequence (not so positive) through the first four bolts which is the crux, to easier climbing and a good rest at a shelf. Milk the rest and prepare for some sequential crimping on flawless rock up the slightly overhanging head wall to the anchors.


This route is located about 20 yards to the east (left) of The Other Side.


9 bolts to 2 bolt springer anchors. The first bolt is low, stick clip recommended for the second bolt.

This route is actually about 100 feet left of The Other Side, just left of Wishbone. It was named after over-hearing some climbers say that Bradshaw aint no Spring Chicken...
