Chicken Run Black Flake Finish >>
33m, 2 pitches. One of the better easy routes in the Dale with an nice finale. 1) 5a, 18m. Follow the corner and belay on a ledge on the left. 2) 5a, 15m. Originally it finished direct but the huge flake has fallen down. Instead, traverse right along the break in a good position and pull up into the trees. Abseil off. © ROCKFAX
