"Shit Hooks", 5.10b, R.
Photo by Blitzo.

Description 

Great knob climbing that begins up an obvious hand crack. A bit run out toward the top on easier ground - very well protected at the crux. A nice, long pitch. 2 ropes to rap.


Location 

Obvious, right-angling hand crack starts just right of Darth Vader, first bolt visible above the end of this crack.


Protection 

Take a few hand-sized pieces for the start; after 20 ft or so you'll clip the first bolt. No other gear besides quickdraws needed after that.

Great climbing! The top is runout, but it is on easy (5.6). By Tuolumne standards, this route is very well protected.

There are places for protection high on the 2nd pitch to take the bite out of some of the runouts
