Access Issue: Hackberry Wash Wall is closed March 15 to June 1. Details

Description

Straight up the middle of the wall is a line of bolts. Climb this past an early crux and then enjoy technical edging up vertical terrain on crisp, although occasionally loose, patina edges. Clip 8 bolts then jog left to a fixed pin just below the 2 bolt anchor. The name is from the Goss guide.

Excellent line, sustained and engaging the whole way. Probably 3.5 stars, so far my favorite edging fest in Snow (better than the stuff on the Aftershock wall).
I think the climbing through first three bolts warrants 11b. It's all about long moves on very thin holds and none of that sweet patina to crimp on, only sandy sloppy crimps and bad feet. Things ease up quite a bit in the upper half but the climbing remains through provoking all the way. The 9th (last) bolt (didn't see a fixed pin) and the anchor are amusing old school trinkets and could use an update.
It's probably worth stick clipping the 1st bolt, you'd have to be taller than 6' to clip it from the ledge and getting to the 2nd bolt may very well be the crux. Dec 8, 2015
