BETA PHOTO: The Top anchors for Huckleberry Thin and Thinner.
Start from the descent trail and climb up the low angle slab to the top. The crux is around the 3rd bolt. Mostly friction climbing with some nice holds here and there. After reaching a very low angle section, continue up past 2 more bolts over easy terrain. Nice warm up and it gets early sun.
To approach this route, follow the descent gully up from the parking lot until you encounter a spire just to the left of the trail and a low angle corner to your right. Start on the trail, almost between the spire and backside of the main cliff to your right.
6(?) bolts. Shuts at top.

Great climb for a moderate leader. Start facing west on the corner with your back to the spire. Anyone know a proper name for this climb?

As of today all of the hangers are in place, and there are no cold-shuts on top. Just two standard large Metolius hangers, also there are 6 bolts on the route itself.

The route described in this post is called "Pucker Factor" 5.7 It was put up by Rusty Baillie in the early 90's. He says if you climb direct at first bolt it boulders in around 5.9. Huckleberry Thin is the route to the right climbs a shallow crack past 4 bolts and is somewhat scary. Huckleberry Thinner is a variation that traverses right after 1st bolt on H Thin and is missing it's second bolt.
