Bird on a Wire  Sucess!

Only my 2nd visit on this route, will come back for more. Better than I remember really. Guided it thus had to rope up for the approach pitch and stopped for my belay at the fixed anchor. If you can solo to the ramp, best to set up above where it intersects Dapple so you are not doing the crux right off of that mid station. This is just a 2 pitch route (not 3 as in the guide) no matter how you approach it. Mare's Tail is a great one to combine with Bird for two decent routes in the same grade range or add Dappled for three multi pitch routes side by side.

Fun, short crux  Sucess!

climbing this last November with the GF. The crux is really short and pretty straightforward I thought

Bird on a Wire  Sucess!

Great route. Combined with Dappled Mare for two laps on the wall before finishing off a short winter day back at Intersection Rock. Very warm south facing wall. Second pitch is awesome. Crux is a shallow finger crack right above an intermittent belay that I passed up to set up a gear belay when it intersected Dappled Mare. I prefer the right crack towards the top for the finish. Makes for another decent pitch that way. With Joe K.
