Description

A fun problem that is on the indistinct arete between the front and right faces. Start on good holds and lieback up the left-facing, positive arete feature. Top out and descend the chimney.

There is a V3 variation to this climb called "Raw Honey" which starts a couple feet right of "Honey Dipper" and involves a few tough moves slapping up the sloping and slippery rail just right of "Honey Dipper". Also quality.

Location

First route on the right face of the Indian Cracks boulder.

Protection

Pad or none. Great landing.

Honey Dipper seems more like a V1. However, some of the people I climb with are short (5'2 or so), and they had a very hard time with some of the moves just because of the spread.

Raw Honey seems like a v3 to me. Jun 19, 2013

I don't boulder much so take what I have to say with a grain of salt... But I thought "Honey Dipper" was a bit easy for its guidebook rating of V2, though I will leave the rating unchanged in deference to the FA. It seemed to me to be about the same difficulty as the neighboring "1 1/4" Crack".

The "Raw Honey" variation, however, seemed solid for V3 and about two V grades harder than "Honey Dipper". Jan 10, 2010
