Description

50' right of where trail meets cliff, at the beginning of cone shaped dirt leading to chimney. On left and at the beginning of the right facing wall. Climb up to the ledge on the arete, step left and follow the black streaks and slab to a large ledge with several oak trees used as anchors. P2 goes right to a weakness over several bulges where it meets the top of the chimney "old route". 90'

Location

Right at spruce hill crag, follow the old creek bed past a set of cliffs on your right. Continue walking straight where youll run into hurricane crag...

Protection

Standard rack, a 4" cam for the exit on P1 to the ledge.

I found this route to be reasonably clean and not too loose. It definitely looks as if it doesn;t see many ascents. This would be spicy for a new 5.5 leader. There are several 5.5 cruxes with gear well below your feet. A good easy route though if Quadrophenia is taken. At the top of the second pitch you can traverse climbers left about 40' to reach the last rappel station for Hesitation. If you only have a single 60m rope, you can hit the bolted anchors at the top of Hooligan's P1. May 20, 2014
