Description

The thin and somewhat reachy start on small edges is the crux, and after the second bolt enjoyable moves on large but somewhat questionable holds lead to the finishing bulge, which is rife with excellent incuts making for a spectacular and enjoyable finish.

A classic of the area and a highly recommeded route for the grade.

Location

Right side of the face between Brewed Awakening and Public Hanging.

Protection

8 bolts, sport anchors

Great route. Technical up to and passing the 1st bolt, and then a great sequence to round the overlap. Fun climbing on big hollow flakes finishes it off. May 21, 2007

Holcomb Valley's best? Certainly a candidate. Jun 22, 2009

Started this one with the low undercling to the crimps above, strenuous to the first bolt, then holds increase in size. Move left before reaching the roof on Public Hanging and continue up on sharp flakes. Rest where you can, the finish is a pull over a small roof. Sep 7, 2009

Did this yesterday again and it's been a long time but I still think this is one of HVP's best. The wonderful athletic moves through the mid-section are extremly satisfying. Boulder problem start. Jul 10, 2011

Bouldery start may be the crux. This route climbs very nice and has a series of easy boulder problems, with nicely placed blots and rests. Excellent route. Dec 5, 2011
Plenty of 10d and 11a routes all over HVP that don't have cruxes anywhere near as hard as the start of this one! May 4, 2014

Awesome diverse set of moves that get you up this one. Im surprised the paper thin flakes havent pulled off, they feel like theyre going to break in your hands. May 16, 2014
I can't think of a single 10d sport climb anywhere that I like more than this one. The bolts are all very well placed, the climbing is mostly easy and fun with a few more challenging sequences, and it is long enough to feel full value.

Also, this thing goes on gear. The placements are pretty good, though I didn't protect for about 20ft of the flake section in the middle of the climb as a fall on a cam there would likely have pulled off a hold. Jun 13, 2016
