Description:

Great fun! On the large wall coming out of the water to the right, just befor the ampitheatre. Obvious large overhanding crack with multiple roofs. Start easy crack coming out of very shallow water past two bolts to balancy section then rest before chimney. past another bolt then into crux: a steep lieback (5.11a) for about 10 feet to a juggy beautiful finish. Next pitch is about 50 feet on some interesting climbing over short roofs(5.10b). both belays have two bolts.

Descent Options:

bolted raps.

5 out of 5 stars Bird of Prey

Beautiful route! Ever since my first time in the canyon this climb has called my name, but was always somewhat intimidating. The pro is all good, and the three nicely spaced bolts add some extra security to the route. Technical crux lower, physical crux higher.

4 out of 5 stars back again, better this time

felt easier following it this time. probably only 5.10+. Technical crux at second bolt and endurance crux near the top. Also felt pretty clean this time. It's a worthy route.
