Seasonal Closure Details

Description

Climb the larger right-facing dihedral of two, directly below the tiny roof. Climb up, turn the easy roof, and continue straight up the face.

Protection

Look for the two trees, and bring long slings (20 feet).

I may be a glutton for the obscure, but I think this is my favorite moderate at Happy Hour.

Relative to other climbs at Happy Hour, the climbing in continuous, there are interesting features, and there is an exciting 20ft+ runout on 5.7 terrain to keep things exciting. The roof moves (attacked directly) are cryptic at first, adding to the tasty flavor of this climb. Jun 1, 2015

Ditto on the runout. Not much happening after the roof. Feet are pretty decent, hands are ok. Wouldn't recommend falling on the second half. Just push on through and the finish tapers off. Moves are 5.7, but the commitment is much higher. Aug 23, 2009

Can lead on gear, but be prepared to run it out after you pull the roof. Crack above the roof is flared and a solid 20 feet before you get another piece in. May 13, 2009

I also think this is a good lead. I think the bottom part is pretty sustained for 5.7. Not a great climb for the blossoming 5.7 leader. Jun 26, 2008

Though listed as a TR, this is a pretty good lead as well. The roof (crux) protects well but be prepared to run it out about 10-15' on good holds after passing the roof. The next good pro is a #5 Stopper in a crack out to the right where the next higher roof starts. Standard rack works well; nothing too big or super small needed. May 28, 2005
