There are a hundred variations of for this route and For Better Or Worse. From the undercling start on the far left to the offwidth on the right, there are so many fun crack systems to hop on and enjoy. The anchors are in a good place, so the rope runs smoothly. It is also possible to climb Chockstone Chimney, set up the toprope, and whip the rope over the bulge over to these climbs (since they share anchors). Jul 9, 2017
The Hass guidebook says to take the horizontal crack right just before the fingers and then follow the hand / wide crack to the top. We did it this way and found it enjoyable. Feb 15, 2016
