Slightly less ferocious than it looks, Heavy Hands is a short but worthwhile route with about 20' of intense 5.8 climbing, then it quickly mellows out. Great protection takes some of the edge off the opening moves.
Climb to a medium roof split by a hand-sized crack just off the ground. Boulder through the roof on good jugs, then follow the crack past a couple of small pine trees to the top.
Starts 50' left of Beginner's Route, about three minutes' walk south of the RJ Gold area.
Medium gear to #3 Camalot or equivalent. Hexes work great in the lower crack. Use trees at the top to build an anchor. Rap from slung tree and quicklink.

loose blocks at the start; a crack you don't jam; a slab covered in pine needles; and two trees you have to maneuver around. 10/10 would not do again.
