BETA PHOTO: Climber on Hex Marks the Poot (5.8-)

Description 

Just left of the more popular Northeast Face is this large expanse of rock which tapers off towards the south. Half a dozen or so routes are located here but few of them see anywhere a fraction of the ascents the more popular lines elsewhere on the Astro Domes see. Primal Flake (5.9+), Strike It Rich (5.10a) and Naked Singularity (5.11c) are some of the better lines here.

Routes from left to right:

Primal Flake (5.9+)
Let's Fuck the Crack Whore (5.10a)
Hex Marks the Poot (5.8)
If You Really Loved Me, You'd Buy Me A Turkey (5.10b)
Strike It Rich (5.10b)
Strike a Bitch (5.10d)
Naked Singularity (5.11c)

Hex Marks the Poot is an incredibly obvious crack (when standing near the Don Juan boulder) on a series of blocks leaning against the South Astro Dome. It is just left of the sheer northeast face of this formation. Climb up the hand and fist crack past a horizontal rail, and then enter the off-width. Left side in, right side smearing on the face will get you up it. It's very fun but gym rats and posers will complain.
