Superb, continuously interesting climbing. Starts with a layback flake and veers up and left through varied challenging moves to the anchors.


Southeast side of Poultry Pillar (across from the Crack House on Castle Rock). It's the first route to the left of the heavily featured/fragile rock No Climb Zone. Look for the obvious layback flake.


Bolts with rap anchors at the top.

stumbled upon this route today and decided to tick it off. It was an okay route. The first time, I veered out to the left around the third bolt, which made it easier. The second time, I decided to stay on the face the whole way and not use anything to the made the route much better.

Definitely a fun route. The first two bolts are challenging for the budding 5.9 climber but definitely worth doing. Climb starts backing off mid way up and thin finishes on 5.8 friction.

As far as short 5.9s go, this one is super fun in my book. The lieback is short, but sweet.
