The route...


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.


This route is located on the north side of the rock and starts on a exposed ledge that is gained by a low fifth class scramble.


2 sets of cams from .5 - 2 camalot, 2-3 lg nuts

bring an extra .75 and 1, if you want to sew it up

Sooo Good. Tape up. The route needs no beta - just look at it, get ready, go. Total knee lock rests up high (wear a left knee brace/sleeve).
