High quality sport route in middle of Hearthstone. The climbing starts from the 1st move and doesn't let up until just before the anchors. Stay on bolt line or risk disturbing suspect rock.


Follows arete on left side of Mission Impossible chimney.


Bolted. Small cam (camalot .3) be/ 1st and 2nd bolts recommended. Anchors have chains.

This route has awkward movement, loose blocks, and crumbly crimps. Even staying on the bolt line my partner and I managed to pull off a fair amount of rock. May 8, 2011
Really, I climbed this with Dave a few weeks ago. I didn't notice any loose rock or crumbly crimps. Dave never said anything about that either. Sure you guys were on the right route? Come to think of it I don't know of any route on the Hearthstone with bad rock. Sure you were at the right rock?? May 9, 2011

Yep, I'm sure. SQtL-II gives it one star and I agree. It is worth doing if you find yourself under it. May 11, 2011

Just did this route today and thought it was amazing. Only had one crumbly hold and a couple that were a little grainy. Super technical climbing through multiple overlaps. Apr 20, 2015
