A hard working hobo who laid and maintained the rail lines was a Gandy Dancer. Start at the Toe, on jugs to a brief layback crack. Long steep face moves mark the crux, though one can avoid it by going off-route to the left. Continue past a dubious horn and a perplexing finish (don't get suckered to the left of the anchors).


Right of South of No North, and is the first route as you come down the small hill from the big log and base of Hobo Hash.


7 bolts to fixed biners anchor

i thought it was closer to the higher end of 10 than the lower, might be due to a couple height dependent moves...that being said, for shorter people, its FUN!

Committing move before the first clip, stick clip recommend, if you're into that sort of thing.
