On the North side of the Lower Breadloaf are two obvious 5.7 cracks. Hough's is the right of the two (the other is called Intruding Dike). Climb up the crack with an awkward bulge move, then wander left up higher to a handcrack. Top this out, and set a gear anchor.

To descend, wander up the formation, then look on the east side of the formation for a one rope rappel (60m rope). This is on top of Bloody Fingers (thin 5.10a crack).


Standard Rack from small up to hand size.

This is a decent climb, but mostly easy climbing with a couple of tricky crux moves. Not as good as its neighbor Intruding Dike. Aug 17, 2004

In the photo below, Peter is climbing off to the left. When I climbed this, I chose the crack to the right in topping out. I am not sure which crack is "on route", however, I felt like the climbing never got beyond 5.6. However, it is really fun moves. The whole climb is short and sweet. Perhaps the crux 5.7 is above where Peter headed? Sep 11, 2005

The crux for us was definitely the upper crack on the left. Sep 12, 2005

I wouldn't recommend descending this by rapping off of the super-popular Bloody Fingers... Is this what most people do?! Can't say I've ever done it (or seen it done). After bringing up your second, head down the 4th class chimney to the north (climber's right). Aug 14, 2011

The crux was definitely the last bit of down-climbing to get back to the ground...haha. Seriously, I freaked out more with the downclimb then the actual climb! This climb was actually really enjoyable though. Worth doing if Intruding Dike is busy. Jun 3, 2013

Descend down the chimney, then I exited off the face with giant holds to get to the boulder on the ground. For me the crux was the first bulge. Apr 24, 2017
