Nighthawk climbs the somewhat dirty crack/corner just left of Mile High Comic Crack. Fun stemming and jamming leads over a couple of entertaining bulges - move right at the end to gain the Mile High Comic Crack anchors.


This is the obvious crack system left of Mile High Comic Crack.


Cams from 0.5 - 4 inches.


Much better than it looks, more thoughtful than thuggish. I would have like to have more than one #3 C4, and a second #4 wouldn't have been bad either.

The start is probably the technical crux and would be a pain to lead due to rope drag and putting the belayer in an unfavorable position. I scrambled up a few feet to the right, eventually merging with the line where I put in a couple of pieces. I then descended to the bottom, TR'd the start, and lead on. Sep 13, 2014

Great route barring it's not DRIPPING in excrement. Largely avoidable swaths of feces detract from the route considerably. Also, the climbing is not very sustained but is surprisingly quite pleasant. Single run of cams #0.5-#4 is healthy on this short li'l thing. Oct 16, 2017
