Description

This line is a linkup of on existing sport route and a trad finish. Dan and myself re-discovered this finish sometime in 2004.

Climb the 2nd sport route on the lower slab to the anchor(5.11A). Continue up and right to a roof. Move left then straight up aiming to top out right, of the obvious V-shaped block at the top(5.10 c/d). Double bolt anchor at the top.

Done as one long pitch, I recall it being quite fun.

Location

This route is located at Middle Hawksbill. Go to the main wall (upper wall) and continue down the cliffline another 300 yards. You will come to the steep 5.12 wall first; continue past this another 100 yards and you will finally reach the correct wall (lower angled slab capped by a roof). Start on the second sport route and climb past the anchor and continue to the top.

Protection

Begining section is seven bolts? The roof requires Camalots to blue (optional 3-1/2 or 4) and double TCUs to orange. Many long runners. You can top rope if you extend the anchor down (watch the ends of the rope!!!!).
