Description

This route is located on the southwest face of the grouse slab , which is a five minute hike around to the left of the main face of Grouse Slab.

From the parking area heading towards the main climbing area of Grouse Slab, this wall is uphill and to the left, and you can see the routes of the Southwest Face on the approach before going around the Slab downhill and to the right.

Once you can see the 9 routes of the Southwest Face from the PCT (this applies for approaches from both sides), head uphill for about 3 minutes on a thin trail through the manzanita bushes.

Half Hit is on the left side of the Southwest Face, and is the crack immediately left of the leftmost bolted arete called One Toke Arete (5.10+).

Half Hit is a crack of varying width, with a not so comfortable move about 8 feet off the ground.

Protection

small to medium, up to 2". Use a directional from small to large, and the top anchors of One Toke Arete for a toperope.
