Description 

The Hoosier is probably the best route on the So What wall, climbing its left hand side on jugs and a few crimps. While not as tall or striking as its neighbors on the Crime Buttress or the White Wall, it's still good fun and seems quite a bit easier than Wristlets or Handcuffed.

The route is easy to recognize as it sports an odd, slightly scary block that is often Xed above the first bolt and an obvious small crimp below the last bolt.


Location 

The leftmost route on the So What wall that's chalked. There is a route just to the left (Reach, 12a/b) that is almost never done.


Protection 

Four bolts, bolted anchors.

Fun route; surprised it's not done more often. Pulling the roof feels more fluid than the roof on So What, plus there's no standing rest, so you have to move through the crux without recovery. Otherwise, I would say they are similarly difficult.

Excellent route that should certainly get more attention. Very good movement though it's difficult to find a decent rest. Roof moves are fun and easier than they appear from the ground.
