By Hook or Crook is another very interesting climb. Start in a grotty offwidth on the right end of Peyronie's Wall. From the top of the crack, transition right through a delicate, sequential and strenuous crux, ending with a fun move to gain purchase atop the rail. Easy climbing on thin holds takes you to the top. Rappel or walk left to descend.


Climbs the southeast arete of Peyronie's Wall.


5 bolts, bolted anchor shared with El Gancho

"grotty offwidth" seemed to be a decent handcrack with feet on sketchy rock, fun route!
