This very fun and full-value 5.8 trad route climbs directly above the belay bolt for Hired Gun. Establish on the ledge above the belay, stem left to reach the obvious handcrack up and left of the belayer, not the wider crack directly above the belay. At 40', step right to a thin crack then immediately right again to another obvious handcrack. Above, continue up the unique flake feature and bail right to a slabby face instead of grabbing the sketchy horn below the roof. Follow a thin crack to the anchors of Hired Gun.


This route begins at the belay bolt for Hired Gun, to the far right of the huge belay ledge under the main wall of the Drilling Fields.


A few stoppers and cams from micro to #3 C4. Doubles in the medium to #3 sizes. Route protects very well and some runners will ease the rope drag.
