Description 

This is a toprope line halfway between Bidoigt and Drugs...named HuGGz, because "Hugs are better than drugs"... (depending on who's hugging you, I'm sure...). I used the anchors on Drugs to toprope it, and it more or less climbs straight under the left side of the rope.

Scramble under the capstone block as you would to get down to Drugs and Rock and Roll. Start just right of the capstone, do a mantly move, then climb up the steep face on ever thinner crimps to the base of a very faint, miniature, left-facing corner. You'll make a long reach from here onto one crimp on Bidoigt, then up and right to finish on Drugs via a traverse across a hanging slab.

Probably not worth bolting, as the bolts between the two existing lines would be somewhat unsightly and it's dead easy to toprope, though the climbing itself didn't feel contrived. A good tick if you're already at the wall.


Location 

Midway between Bidoigt and Drugs on the west face of Der Freischutz, Dinosaur Mountain.


Protection 

Toprope off of anchor for Drugs.
