Description

At the left edge of the south face of Rock Hudson, a gully angles 45deg up & right to the base of a short dihedral: this is Nereltne.If this short, steep climb was a full pitch it would be awesome. Pretty easy, and a safe lead, as the wide crack in the corner eats up big cams the whole way. Two bolt rap anchor on top.

Safe short and easy ... *IF* you're comfortable in the wide, and bring the gear for it.

The 5.8 under the anchors is a nice TR to catch. Apr 29, 2009

The gulley eats up almost more time then the crack. I think the bush growing in the gulley is the routes crux. The crack is Really fun though, another J tree crack that is just sadly short. Jan 4, 2009

Sweet but short wide hands. Easy to protect with a couple #3's and a #4. No problem with the 4th class gully to gain the crack. Apr 8, 2007

I disagre with this being a "safte lead". You are faced with the choice of either running out an easy but steep ramp about 20 feet off the deck, or a wide low angle hard to protect chimney/offwidth to reach the corner.

Otherwise, the climbing is solid and if a full pitch would be a super classic route. Leave the small stuff on the deck as you will only want 2" and higher for this one. Mar 26, 2005
This is a good lead for a novice. I'd call it a six though.If someone chops the anchors, you'll have to jump off. Nov 11, 2004

The anchor bolts were replaced 2/02. ASCA: "Webbing is still used and will need to be replaced occasionally, since chains would likely mar the rock over time in this instance." Oct 31, 2003
