This is a much better direct start to Hesitation than is Hesitation Direct as it involves more good climbing. Climb to the second bolt on Hesitation Direct. At this point diagonal up and left (11b) to a bolt, then up easier climbing to a 4th and final bolt. Easy runout climbing above the 4th bolt eventually joins Hesitation a short distance below it's belay.

This route was rated 10d for many years, and the climbing is still about the same. Not sure when/why the rating changed. Note that there are 4 bolts, the latest guide only shows 3.


One pitch route starting on No Go Ledge. Same start as Hesitation Direct.


4 bolts and some optional small gear for the crack after joining Hesitation.
