DescriptionThis is a nice little sport climb on the South face of the Hand.
Enjoy big buckets as you ascend a slightly overhanging huecoed wall past a couple bolts. Gain a rest. Find a balancy, slightly awkward crux as you face climb angling right on vertical terrain towards the anchor.
This traditional rating might be a bit soft.
This route was previously recommended by Bobbi Bensman as a good route for redpoint training.
You can TR Power Bulge from this anchor.
LocationHike up the Mallory Cave Trail to the Hand, short of Mallory Cave, up a gully between Der Freischutz and the Hand. Find an inviting set of slightly overhanging huecos just right of an impressive face climb trending left (Power Bulge, 12c).
Protection4 QDs plus 2 slings for the anchor. Apparently, the pin is missing (and should be replaced).
Per Guy H.: you can place a 0.4 C4 in the pin hole above the lip if you like.
