DescriptionThis is the shortest downclimb off Hillbilly Rock, but it is harder than some of the routes on the East Face! The crux is only about 15' long, but it is quite steep and exposed and can be scary to downclimb.
Begin on the north side of the rock below the summit. A weakness or trough can be seen diagonaling right below a major roof, this is the route. Climb up dirty ledges past some trees to the start of the crux section. There are some pretty large holds through the crux, but there are several large blocks that appear loose - fortunately they all seem to be quite solid. After the crux, wander south on a ledge and easily reach the summit from the west. Downclimb the route or rap 60' north from the top. The rap should end pretty much at the base of the route.
If you're downclimbing this route, recognize the start of the hard section by a suitcase-sized block which is jammed in a 3 foot wide crack. Lower yourself down off big holds on this block.
