[Hide Comment] One of my favorite routes at HCR. A crimpy, vertical face leads to a ledge and sustained, juggy headwall to finish, with the redpoint crux (for me) being the last move to the anchors. Very cool! Oct 20, 2008

[Hide Comment] Pretty cool route! The bottom (vertical) portion of this route is filled with micro crimps and small feet. It's fairly sustained and probably clocks in at a hard 5.10 or easy 11. Once you get to the enormous ledge, have lunch, maybe tan for an hour or 2 (don't forget sunblock) and head up the blocky overhang.

consider setting up a top rope and having your buddy climb up to clean your quickdraws to avoid the strenuous clean (if I remember correctly). Aug 17, 2015
