Description

This gem is one of the few pure jam cracks at Parkline. The route starts out fingers then soon turns to hands. Continues hands, jogging left around the roof, then big hands and fists to the top.

Location

Hayley Anna is on the far west end of Parkline, past the Cockshead, just past an obvious, large, right facing corner. Once past the corner, look for the splitter to a roof about 60' up.

Protection

Maybe this doesn't need to be said, but for the highly sensitive climbers out there - Look out for the poison oak that prospers at the base of this climb. Make sure your rope doesn't fall into it after you rappel. Otherwise, this crack is definitely worth the walk. I don't know why Don Reid didn't draw this one into his topo. Feb 28, 2010

Although a bit of a walk to the far left side of Parkline, Hayley Anna is worth it. Also adding the additional 2 pitches above, Soft in the Middle 5.8, makes it even better. The first pitch of Soft in the middle is often wet but the giant holds and abundant pro make it very doable in any conditions. The third pitch as of yet is still runout but I will be adding a couple of bolts soon. Rap soft in the Middle with 2 ropes. The second rap has great exposure dropping over the giant roof. The third station is above a long 3' wide ledge about 15' left of a small tree. This anchor is the 2nd pitch anchor for the route Sidetracked. Mar 18, 2011

Climbed Hayley Anna a few days ago with Mucci. He loved it. He argued it was way better than Bishops Terrace.

I had not been on this route in several years. A new bolted anchor has been added. Not sure who added it. The new anchor is off to climbers right before you get to the top of the ledge. If you rap off climbers right you can keep your ropes out of the poison oak. You can not make it from here with a 70 M rope to the first pitch anchors on Soft in the Middle. To continue up Soft in the Middle move the belay to the top of the ledge. Mar 19, 2011
