Heartbreaker has a couple sport routes, a few obscure trad lines, and a classic 5.10 hand crack. The routes are on the NW and N sides of the rock, so they are great hot weather climbs.

Getting There 

Heartbreaker is the northern most formation in the string of the Odyssey and Boxtop. Follow the boxtop trail past the fence until you are even with the crag. A faint trail leads to the large boulders at the base.

Heartbreaker 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  ID : City of Rocks : Heartbreaker
Heartbreaker is a classic line, which does not see a lot of traffic due to its location. The next time you are at Boxtop or The Odyssey, you should stop and check out this beauty. It is one of the better 5.10 trad lines at the City.Follow the thin leaning hand crack to the crux move entering the dihedral. The crack above eases to easy 5.10 with good jams and gear. Save at least one #2 camalot for the anchor, which is hand size gear....[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
