Description

A classic Haffner moderate! This was the first bolted route to go in at Haffner.

Good, solid holds lead to the base of the overhanging wall near the top and a good rest. Move up and hook the obvious horizontal hold on the wall, and clip the bolt to the right (too far right, awkward fall). Move a little higher and if you can, get the next bolt(sometimes covered by ice), then kick your feet up on the horizontal. Work the tools higher, finish off the overhang, and get onto ice, and then the finish.

Location

Half 'n' Half is one of the first routes you come to as you enter the area. It is on the left and is easy to pick out because it is on a flat arete, between some of the most overhanging sections of the cliff. The smooth overhanging wall with the horizontal edge is easy to identify.

Protection

5 bolts and a couple screws will protect the route. There will likely be v-thread anchors at the top in late season. In early season the route will be a little harder without ice, and you may have to go higher to rock/trees to find an anchor.
