Description

This is the leftmost bolted line on the upper tier of The Clock Tower. It is fun, juggy, and worth a run if you are in the area. Originally, it was rated 12a (relayed verbally by a BC guidebook author who led me up it), but I think that was perhaps due to lack of cleaning. It requires more power than technique with a good rest. 11- seemed more grounded.

Location

This was the leftmost line on the upper tier of The Clock Tower. It is now the 2nd most left route.

Protection

6 bolts & something for the 2 bolt anchor.

This route was originally rated .11d not 5.12a & it is not the leftmost bolt line. The leftmost route, called "Ditch Witch" is rated .12a or .12b. Ditch Witch shares the 1st bolt & then climbs the leftmost bolt line. It is essentially Hee Haw revisited with a separate finish to higher anchor, unless you climb the upper part of the route to the left of the bolts (.12b). Chris Alber climbed it on the left. Squeezed & contrived.

As for Hee Haw, it is the second route from the left. I'm sticking to the .11d rating. There is big reach move or dyno off an undercling past the 4th bolt. Then past the 5th bolt, is another move off an undercling with poor feet to make a final reach.

A harder climb than "Animal Magnetism" or its neighbor "Leave It To Beaver" in my opinion. It is powerful for a stretch. Jul 28, 2017
