Description 

This short climb lies immediately above Reefer Madness, and the two routes can be combined as one pitch if you are careful about rope drag. From the top of Reefer Madness, traverse left into the gully (top of Sangaphogos). Move up a few feet and then traverse right to the start of a right-slanting hand crack. The next 15' forms the crux of the route, as you are hanging on hand jams while moving to the right - great fun! The rock is a bit gritty, but the jams and protection are good (tape is advised). When you reach a sharp bend in the crack, step up and continue on easy ground to the top.


Location 

This is just above Reefer Madness, and between the upper sections of Sangaphogos and Ragger Bagger.


Protection 

Hands to wide hands cams.

YIKES! The 'hands' jamming across the traverse isn't as consistent as it looks from below. Save a #3 Camalot for the flared middle section and your follower won't need to beat you senseless with a pine tree.
