Description 

My notes on Boys In The Hood are from 1998, and were squared up with the old Perkins guide, so I hope this is on target.

Hump around the right side of the cliff to the cut-back left. Boys is the fifth or sixth route in from the right and is just left of the pin route. Boys gives powerful, well protected climbing up a steep wall that gets progressively more run-out as you approach the anchor. My notes indicated that some upper body guns are useful (!).

Cool route; it is the easiest thing on this side of the wall.

Protection 

Half a dozen draws and a rope.
