Description:

Located on the east face of Hyperion Slab/The Chicken, in an alcove 40 ft. uphill (north) of "Goldline." Begin climbing the overhang below two large inclusions, left of the tree. From a pocket, pull or lieback up and onto the inclusions. Continue working up the face on shallow pockets and edges to a hole (3rd bolt) below a large fractured inclusion. Work up and right on pockets and edges to the ridge line. Climb the right edge of the slab past a 5th bolt and a run out to the anchor. It is difficult to clean this route from the anchor due to the leaning nature of the line. Careful of the swing/pendulum. Best to have a follower clean.

Descent Options:

Rappel from the 2-ring Fixe anchor down the fall line (follows a shallow trough).

3 out of 5 stars More Beer

The opening move is a lot steeper than it 1st appears.
Fun moves that aren't straight up, but meander up and across the face utilizing a variety of pockets, edges, and knobs. Fun and well protected.
