Description

On the far south end of the Hobo Jungle is a striking arete. SoNN opens with steep 5.10 stemming and crack moves to a decent rest below the bulge. Crank over the steep bulge (5.11), with good holds but poor feet. Establish on to the arete with an off-balance and techy crux at the end.

Location

far left side of the crag. A tall pine tree is at the base, as tall as the route.

Protection

9 quickdraws, preferably pre-hung.

if youre into this sort of thing, it is fairly easy to hang the last three draws after lowering from Southern Exposure and reaching around the corner! May 19, 2014

Great route! Although the arete stumped me... is the route intended to follow the right or left side of it? Jun 11, 2014

most of the holds are on the left side, Austin. But if you get suckered too far left its awkward to get back. Jun 11, 2014

One of the best sport climbs in town! Every move is fun, and it gets progressively harder up until the end. Mega classic

Edit: got on this today with a friend who showed me some new beta for just after the roof move. Basically you can move left to a no hands rest, and bypass any arete moves. Definitely drops the grade a bit, but is questionably "off route". Squeezing the arete is definitely the most fun way, so that's what I recommend Mar 18, 2016
