Description [Edit]

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 [Edit]

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

Protection [Edit]

Pad or none. Great landing.

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

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
