Climb the dihedral handcrack over a few small bulge-like sections. This is one of the most popular lead routes at Sam's.


In the dihedral on the left end of the South Side, this is the dihedral handcrack, named after the horn halfway up.


Gear to 3.5". 2 bolt anchor. Rap or lower.

This is easily top roped once youre on top of the cliffline. A decent route.

Very nice route that protects exceptionally well. It did eat a cam of one of the climbers in the party before me, FYI.

About halfway up, the crack flares inward...almost ate one of my cams. Stoppers are recommended there. There are a number of bomber passive pro placements. Take a handful of larger stoppers.

This is a WAY better lead than a TR. The anchors make TR a bit draggy. Quite fun on lead though.

Be careful with your cams!! They will get eaten!

I have a Trango Flex cam (#3 I think) stuck in the crack just below the anchors. Will give a reward if you happen to be able to get it out.

Someone destroyed your trango at the top its basically fixed gear at this point. There is also another older cam a 1/3 of the way up. Its a decient climb. fun stemming. there may be poison ivy halfway up im not positive but beware. I agree not a great route to TR unless you extend over the lip.
