This route is in the Country Club Cave and clips through the two double draws and heads left to different black bolts and anchors than Divitator and Pink Taco. Start on Divitator, clip though both double draws staying low in two thin pockets and finishing with the final gaston boulder problem of Bitches Get Stitches. Some say this is contrived but I'm pretty sure it's the original Left Hazard before the higher variation (Left High) was discovered.


Chain draws exist as of 2012.

The "high version" is the legit line. The version Bill describes above is a very contrived way to climb this route. The logical way to climb Left Hazard is done thusly: Climb through the Divitator and Pink Taco cruxes, when you reach the jug pocket at the end of the Pink Taco crux launch up and left into a final boulder problem garding a right-facing, jug flake, from there a few easy moves will have you at the Left Hazard/Bitchez Git Stitchez anchors.

To climb 'Left Hazard High', basically climb 'Pink Taco', then walk the top of the cliff band to the left until the 'Left Hazard' achors are at your feet. Bend down and clip them. Check.

Couldn't you walk around to the top of the cliff and get to the anchors easier? Maybe I'm missing something.
