Description

A small ledge offers a rest before crux of small edges to pinch and pockets. The rest is hanging on to the anchors. Wild Hops has perfect rock and is great fun.

Location

This is 100 feet past F***in' Greenies on the next good wall. There is a small tree right above the anchors.

Please do not climb crack in center of wall as this is where the wild hops grow, and we like to use them for brewing. Who doesn't like a good homebrew?

Protection

5 glue-in Fixe bolts to anchors. The first bolt is approximately 14 feet off the deck requiring 5.9 climbing to reach it.

Very cool climb! The rock is immaculate and the climbing is really engaging and fun. Since you asked, I did indeed send it (second go, couldn't pull off the OS). I think I met Alex at El Rito, NM, a few weekends ago and he mentioned this route. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. Congrats on finding such a great line. Jun 29, 2011

This is such a cool & fun climb. Neat, thin, tecky moves through the crux and good endurance to finish the 5.11-5.1o climbing to the chains. I almost took a mega whipper trying to clip the anchors!!!! Sep 20, 2011

Best route on the wall. Nice job on the FA, although the first bolt is mighty high off the ground. May 28, 2013

My climbing partner had a large chunk of rock break off in the middle of the crux section and with it the one good foot, I think it made it a bit harder, maybe a letter or two. It broke off before my first attempt up so maybe someone who has climbed it before would be a better judge of how much harder it is. May 18, 2014
Partner broke off a jug going to the anchors on May 23 and took a considerable whip. Shouldn't make the route any harder though. I didn't climb it before the broken foot in the crux section but would think that this is harder than 12a. Then again, I don't climb vertical 12s very often. Jun 13, 2014

I resent this route June 13. The piece of rock that came out near the crux section was a couple feet left of how I climb the route. I did not notice any broken holds near the chains. To me, this route is the same as it has always been and remains 12a. Jun 14, 2014
