Description

This is the left of two aid lines which are on the wall left of Not A Hogan. There are a few "chicken " bolts along the seam at the start....I tried doing it without, and a piece popped out, hit me in the face (I got 4 stitches), and then all the pieces ripped and I decked out too. When I returned to finish the climb, I did it with the chicken bolts. After the dicey start, it finishes with a crack which takes stoppers, TCUs and cams.

Location

On the wall left of Not a Hogan on TeePee Rock.

Protection

The starts has a hook, some RURPS/heads/beaks and QDs for the chicken bolts, then the crack opens up to stoppers, TCUs, cams, and soon you are at the top,

nothing more than the recommended gear list;.....some quick draws for the bolts, a few RURPS, beaks, and copperheads..then stoppers and TCUs.....it's very safe with the chicken bolts.....and one hook for the opening move. Jun 16, 2016

The right aid climb is also A3, but is more dicey for it has no "chicken" bolts, and there is a big gritty boulder at the base to land on it your placements fail; much more committing, but no more difficult then it's brother to the left. FA Tom Wolfe 1999 Jun 26, 2010
