Description

This climb is not in the guidebook. A fellow climber pointed it out as we were passing by. He was not sure of the name, but he thought it was called Hanson's Folly. Maybe Mr. Hanson knows the truth.

Anyway, climb a face with a crack on the left to a ledge. From here, it is class 1 to class 3 to the chimney. Climb the chimney to the overhanging offwidth (crux). Figure out the crux and follow the crack and slab to the top.

Location

Hanson's Folly is a little further southeast from Primal Jam. Look for a chimney and an offwidth crack (see photo).

There are multiple options for the descent. There is a class 4 descent to the south near the start of the Cave Wall and at least three class 4 descents to the north before you get to the Grocery Store Wall.

Protection

Standard rack plus I used a #4 BD and #5 Friend at the crux.
