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...


Slightly left of Birch Tree Crack.


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