Description

Two pitches, start in a small alcove at the base with a fist sized crack that trends up and to the left to (2) sheltered ledges. Then you have a choice of going center, left, or right. All seem to go at about the same difficulty although the amount of protection varies. Climb about another 100' to a very spacious ledge and belay.

Pitch 2 runs up to the left and starts about 15' below a medium sized crack, climb the crack and continue upward either by climbing out onto the face with sparse protection or by continuing to the left.

Location

Beta photo appears to show Right Side route up The Hour Glass as described in Sherman (2nd Ed.). We started up Sherman's Left Side route, which coincides with beginning of True Grip. Single bolt protects step across left side chimney where it narrows. After one 190' pitch we scrambled out right through slot under chockstone. Protected with nuts and cams to 2". Fun route.
