Located on Hound Rock, this route is about five feet to the right of the route Tossed Green. Start on an easy slab which leads into the crack proper. Climb up to a rotten downward pointing flake. Surmount this (crux) and continue up the crack to the top. There are rap slings around a large boulder at the top of the crack. The poor rock on this route is in contrast to the good rock on the other Hound Rock routes.

a fairly undignified route that should only be climbed to access "tossed Green" to the left.

This route wasn't so bad if you like wide rotten cracks. I for one hate wide rotten cracks so I was glad to pass the lead to my partner. I would say this route is a good warm up to Tossed Green or on your way to the White Cliffs of Dover.

The rap slings are no longer there. Walk off climbers left.

Not as bad as all that, but not great either.
The new Vogel Guide (Josh West) claims there are two bolts atop this gem. There are not, so beware.

There are no slings at the top. There are, however, slings visible from the top of this climb, but a prudent climber would have to set up a special belay to reach them.

This climb sucks. The downward pointing flake 8ft off the ground is not long for the vertical world and is plain dangerous, and everything else is crumbling. The new "Classics" guide says this route shares the anchor with Tossed Greens, but thats a stretch. The rope does not like getting over there. The only redeeming quality it had was that it let me TR Tossed Greens.
