Cool move stepping off of Hernia proper + two 5.10a moves that are well protected by the bolt. lots of fun overall. Jun 18, 2014

I don't know why it took me 4 years to do this route again. It's a good variation to make Hernia a bit more challenging. It's also a low stress way to the anchor atop Captain Hook, Pass Time, and Frustration. Pretty easy for 5.10a slab and well protected by the one bolt. It's a bit of a run after the bolt over easy ground. You could protect it with larger cams (I think) or just run it out to the belay at the tree. Feb 5, 2018
