Climb up the central right-facing corner. Becomes lower angle at the top. One can do a variation finish that traverses out onto the slab.

Shares the same start as On the Rebound.


In the middle of Hag Crag. It is the only right-facing corner there.


Full range of gear, including wide pieces.

Bolted anchor at the top.

Is this thing worth cleaning? It looks kind of like a battered sandwich lite from the ground. Jul 20, 2015

That sounds like a good description of the route. Perhaps though it is more a complementary route to Battered Sandwich, seeing as it faces the other way.

For the 5.7 climbers who crave more routes and 5.8-9 climbers seeking more warm-ups, it would be worth it to clean. Jul 20, 2015
As of today, 9 April 2016, the route has been cleaned thoroughly and is comfortable on lead. It does, however, lack an anchor and we had to get creative. With an anchor it would be a worthwhile climb for someone looking for something in the 5.7 range. The middle of the portion protects in the overhead crack with 4" and 5" cams but other options are available. Apr 9, 2016

Buy bolts, hangers and chain and you can use my drill to put in anchor, might as well fully finish the job Apr 10, 2016

Don't let the roof thing fool you this is a chill 5.7 hand crack. Ideal rack in BD sizes: a couple finger sized pieces, 2X .75-3, #4. You could bring another two and three. Save a #2 for the last 20'. Aug 7, 2016
Are people using those old chains out on the face as the anchor? It looks like they belong to the bolted climb next door. Or is there something higher up? I was on Hag Crack, so didn't have the best view. Aug 12, 2016
Could be a good route with some cleaning and an anchor, can't recommend it now. 5.7 climbing ended with a 5.moss traverse to the Hag Crack anchors--you could maybe get to the anchor out on the face, but you can't see them from the corner so it would be tough to hit without being familiar.

11/2017 New anchor installed at the top of the natural crack line. No more traversing right to escape the line. Just rappel and giggle about how much fun you just had. This is a fantastic line for the 5.7 to 5.8 leader. This should get lots more traffic now that there is a safe descent. Nov 7, 2017

This route is in good shape mostly clean with a new looking 2 point rappel anchor. Just follow the flare all the way up and it’ll hit you in the face. No need to traverse out unless you want a more difficult finish. The slab is “dusty” but moss free and there is a loose stack of rocks in the corner of the exit moves. Could get trundled when no ones around and on rappel. Wouldn’t want to trundle your rope or belayer. Sep 6, 2018
