Climb through jugs on the gently overhanging arete past the first 4 bolts. After clipping the 4th bolt, crank through some small crimps and pinch the arete to gain access to bigger holds (crux). Keep it together as you move up a lieback corner with bad feet. Cruise past the last couple of bolts to the anchors.


HBAT starts about 50 feet down in a large depression. Some easy third/fourth class terrain leads down into the depression from the southwest side.


Seven bolts to a two bolt anchor. Hopefully soon I'll add some quicklinks to the anchors. There is a wedged block at bolt 3 which is somewhat questionable. I spent a couple hours trying to get it loose with a prybar, but with no success. With freezing and thawing in the next couple of winters it might work itself loose.
