Description

Start in the middle of the east facing wall with your hands in a nice horizontal crack. Pull up onto the wall and cross right to a positive but sharp right hand. Move again to another small crimp for your left. Get your feet set up good and launch into the supper jug finish. A fun dyno and a good warm up for this area. A nice little problem that is worth the time to send.

Location

From the first parking lot hike the Sisters Trail (Staying right of "The Brothers Lookout"). Continue just past the "Pachyderm Boulder" where you will began to head LEFT or (WEST) up hill into a slowly tightening gully. The boulder is some what hidden in the trees just off the Sisters Trail right at the bottom or Eastern most section of "The Elicit Area." The boulder is called the "Hush-Hush" boulder and at the moment only has this one problem that travel right up the middle of the boulders east facing wall. It's short and powerful with clean moves.

The first major boulder that should come into view will be the Marmot Block. Once you have found this boulder all the other currently established lines can be found just a little further up hill.

NOTE: This area can also be found by hiking from the "Energy Wall" almost due NORTH over the ridge/saddle. If this is the route you choose you will most likely run into the "Haus Rail" first. Hopefully the photo beta posted will help let you know that you have found the right gully.

Protection

Pads. A spot would be nice but not really needed on this one.

Did a nice line starting on the right arĂȘte on two slopers, slap to the slopes above, work feet, hit the sloping rail, and work it out left and to the uber jugs. Mantle finish. Fun prob, V4ish. May 14, 2014
