Immediately right of Isotoner Moaner are two face climbs a body length apart, and Rush Hour is the left of the two. Climb up on edges and pockets on excellent stone. Crux is low, so save some juice for the continuity above. Fine addition.


Eight draws and a rope

Fun little route -- solve the crux (it's a puzzler) and the rest is well-protected pocket pulling to the anchors

I very much enjoyed this climb. it has 2 parts. the first is sequential and technical. with a big move off a crimper. rest then go on up more typical division type climbing. the top is also taxing and pumpy. a fine endeavor.

Finally!! I love this route and can't believe it only got one star in the AF book. After many attempts, I found it easiest just to go straight up instead of veer to the right at the top. There is also a big rest in the middle, not quite no hands but you can definitely get your heart rate down and prepare for the top.

Awesome climb for your sustained vertical face 5.11a, with a couple 5.11b moves (from crimp to jug). Like many AF climbs, the anchors should have been set 5ft lower for a better climb that didn't have a weird, easy, poor-quality finish.
