what a lovely route!!!  Sucess!

very nice route.. Thank you Dow for putting it up.
Toasty on sunny days, but the rock quality and variety of climbing is amazing. Would repeat this route anytime.

Cold day out  Sucess!

Ropes stuck on rap, but eventually freed them.

cold day  Sucess!

Super cold out, but this was a popular route thanks to abundant sunshine. Get there first. Double 60s pulled OK except for last rap.

Great Route  Sucess!

I climbed Birdland in spring of 2009. Great route, easy to rappel with a single 70m rope.

climbing with the sheep  Sucess!

Jascha and I climbed Birdland, and once again had the wall to ourselves except for a herd of 5 bighorn females that we watched for several hours. The finger crack on the last pitch was nice. Best climb we've done on this trip. No rope issues with our 70m. If I do this route again wouldn't bring any cams other than a 0.5 and 0.75 Camalot. Lots of good nut placements.

Fun  Sucess!

One of my first big leads.. really felt good to have good protection. Had a little trouble route finding on the second to last pitch,, but after running it out I saw the chains.

Birdland  Sucess!

Some advice, if behind someone slow (as we were), do Big Horn at the top of pitch 2 and rappel back down to continue climbing. We still ran into our party...oh well....Big Horn was really nice and made the day. The last pitch of Birdland is the fun. The 3rd pitch is good for the grade as well. Nothing too challenging. I advise a 70m rope vs doubles to avoid getting a rope stuck. I don't think double 60's save any more than one rap anyway.
