Climb the easy fist crack of Hex Marks The Poot for twenty feet to a horizontal crack. Do a hand traverse left along a thin crack, place protection, and do an exciting no hands step-up to a bolt. Crux friction leads to easier but still fun face climbing and the top. This route is very much worth doing.


This starts at the same place as Hex Marks The Poot.


standard rack and three bolts

Just climbed this and the 11.b (Buford's House of Liver) off High Strung anchors. I have to say that if I compare the two, this one comes in at a solid 11.a for the move from the crack to the first bolt. True it's only 2 moves but holy geeze, 10.b? Nope. Dec 3, 2017

We rated these things a long time ago when we were young, stronger and lighter, and we were always very apprehensive to give anything a 5.11 rating;......because 5.11 was almost impossible, this this we could climb. It's a fun and interesting climb and it was fun hand-drilling the bolts on-site on the lead. Was one of the few times I did a new route with the amazing and awesome Jeff Archer. I remember his 5 year old daughter was with us that day;....she was playing with her Barbies.......she is now 31 years old. Dec 6, 2017
