Description [Suggest Change]

They Are Afraid Of Her was Crazy Horses only daughter, This route is named after her. Start on the diagonaling finger crack which leads to fun and committing face climbing through two bolts. The crack gobbles up gear and has one "interesting section" right before the rest and first bolt. Continue face climbing up and slightly left while getting small gear in diagonal and horizontal cracks. The holds on the wall are sculpted sloper pods and at times can feel insecure. Have a good head and cruise flawlessly through to the next bolt. Above This place a red Camalot and fire off the easy 50ft run out left side of arĂȘte to the top.

Location [Suggest Change]

Crack is great at the beginning takes tons of pro. After clipping the first bolt expect smooth slopey holds to the top. Great line question is who has what it takes to make a repeat!? Jul 27, 2013

smooth slopey pocket climbing on what shouldn't be "exposed" but will feel it. Keep a cool head you can place a red camalot up high. If you don't make it your belayer better be watching or you could possibly deck on the ledge. Should be R/X IMHO. Sep 14, 2013
