Description

This is the 2nd face route just left of the large leaning block.

Decently well-protected climbing down low on sometimes above average rock lead into an easy but flared, and hard to protect crack. Two bolt anchor (hangers only) are above and slightly to the right of the crack's end.

  • The name is a take-off on H.R. Haldeman, President Nixon's White House Chief Of Staff, who was involved in the Watergate Scandal and forced to resign.

Protection

4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor (all 3/8"); hangers only at the top
