Description 

Obvious steep hand crack after a bolted face. Two bolts to ledge where the very sporty crack begins. 40 feet of steep moves gains you some huge jugs, a bolt, and 10 more feet of easy low angle moves to the anchors

Location 

Directly left of Chunko goes Bowling. Obvious Trad line. NOT the 5.6 in the guide book.

Protection 

3 bolts, Good anchors, hand sized gear.

This climb was bolted the whole way up. It was chopped by Jim Taylor in 2006 due to the obvious trad gear placements in the corner and therefore the lack of need for bolts.

I'm just stating the opinion of the chopper not mine.

Good route though. Watch out for bees nests towards the top of the corner.

Is this not the same route as "Hell With That"?

Yes, this is "The Hell with That" and used to be a sport route. Good option on a busy weekend since its mixed status will likely mean its open. If has its own designated set of anchors.

The face climbing down low is the business. The rest of the route is cruiser, maybe 5.6 or 5.7. A nice variation is to traverse in from the left along the ledge, keeping the difficulty a bit more consistent.
