Description Suggest change

Hourglass begins by climbing into the crux of Birch Tree crack and when you've finally reached a decent hold on Birch Tree, cut left onto the face a few feet using crimps. Deadpoints on marginal crimps bring you to a decent rest ledge. From here fire straight up on super dooper thin crimps and make another long deadpoint to a decent hold and continue on good ledges to the top. A thriller of a route and if this gets ya goin... try the Hourglass Direct. I think they call it Hourglass because the pump timer is ticking...

Location Suggest change

Slightly left of Birch Tree Crack.

Protection Suggest change

Small nuts, cams on Birch Tree, one decent C3 in a horizontal on route. Run it to the top.
