Description

Hanta Yo (emphasis on the second syllable) is Lakota Sioux for "clear the way" which was necessary for the first ascent, and good advice for the spotter on the initial slab...
The climb is located where the approach trail meets the base of the cliff. Climb up the 18’ ft of unprotected slab to a tree ledge. Move up the corner and pull the roof on good flakes and holds to another tree ledge. Continue up and left placing gear when possible. Pull the final headwall to a large tree ledge. Move right to a big tree and rap.

Location

Just right of the oak tree and Toltec Dream

Got to the tree ledge above the roof/flakes add had no idea where to go from there. Ended up climbing the right-arching flake on P1 of The Wayback Machine. I saw the tree anchor for TWM but felt more natural moving up and left to a two-bolt anchor (is that the top of Hanta Yo?). Oct 17, 2018
