Description

This is a relatively sustained route with solid ledge handholds and pockets. Mounting the ledge beneath the anchors is a little trickier than it looks.

Location

The set of bolts located between the Mind Mantle Arete and the 69.5 Crack.

Protection

4 bolts plus anchors (Eds. one is loose and wiggles).

Be aware, there is a bee's nest about halfway up, off to the left. They didn't bother us yesterday, but you can hear the hum coming from it. If you were doing the trad route to the left of HPW, I'd skip it. You'd have to cross right over the opening. May 2, 2017

Well bolted-every clip is secure and well placed. Good beginner lead. Mostly pretty easy except from the last bolt to the anchors requires a couple awkward moves if you go straight up. Saw a couple people move right and then up to the final ledge, which is easier. Feb 29, 2016

This is a fun route, but it cannot be top roped. It is listed that it can, but unless you climb the crack to the right, it cannot be easily top roped. Also, none of the bolts seemed loose today. Jan 11, 2016
There is a bee hive about 5 feet to the left of the second bolt, I've climbed it twice in the last 4 weeks with two different groups and nobody has been stung.

By the way, it was my first lead! Apr 27, 2012

Someone did a nice job putting up this route; it must have a name. I just noticed it for the first time today, so it must be pretty recent. Like Kevin Spies a Line nearby, this route is a good beginner lead. Aug 10, 2011

This is a fun route with very featured rock that is mostly 5.6 until one difficult move below the anchors. Jan 27, 2011
