Is there a plan to have an access pitch from the bottom?

Also, is the first pitch of HB for Glory completely free? (i.e., up to the amazing, long crack pitch.) Jul 24, 2016
Jon , yes I have climbed bits of the face plumb line to HBFL. I would like to give you a tour. Climb dike fight to HBFG. Then top rope a project pitch to figure bolt placements.

The first pitch to HBFG is a decent 5.7 crack. The second is still very dirty, I climbed it and it felt 5.9 and its a short pitch. There used to be a tree at this point that was used to get to the ledge. It's has fallen due to rotting and wind. So now this breaks up p2 into two pitches. Just a little more work left to get something established to the ledge that's easier then 5.11. there a couple possibilities, you will see. I'm sure this probably really confusing to every one lol Jul 24, 2016
There is potential for HBFG p2 to stay but it will be really hard but I have a feeling will be the more popular way. By breaking it up there is a easier variation that goes wide right so it would be hard to link and prevent rope drag. I want to establish both ways. Jul 24, 2016
