This climb is the left-most line of bolts on Rock Hudson's E Face. This line is left of Looney Tunes and Right of the Start of Nerelente. Climb up a steepening slab on prgressively harder moves to reach a disgustingly thin crux stepping left up onto a lower angle slab. From there you can proceed to climb up the Left facing corner above (hand-to-fist gear or just run it out) or up the face to the left (crumbling, TR it) either of which is OK.

The crux move felt like 5.11a to me (harder than The Vampire (10d) or British Airways (11a), more like Buford's House Of Liver (11a) Then again I am not a good friction climber. This also felt harder than Hot Rocks (11c)... but that's another story.


3 bolts, gear to 3" for anchors
