Description

Start at right-facing flake, cross an overhang, then use only hands and feet within a foot-wide zone centered on a hairline crack. Good slabby footwork and balance practice. Locals called it a Carderock classic, thus the rating.

Location

Hades Heights, right side.

Protection

Gear required for TR anchor.

It's a 'Carderock' rating. Done 'purely', with the crimpers right around the crack above the overhang, the 'mantle' problem is more like 10b or so.... Nov 2, 2014

Not sure how the eliminates (e.g. the 1' band of holds) reconcile with the 5.9 rating. I got shut down trying to get through the overlap. There's literally nothing I could find in that 1' band within reach above the left side crimper in order to get feet over the lip. What am I missing? This thing felt super hard. Aug 17, 2014
