Description Suggest change

An excellent introduction to classic Index face and slab climbing. Highly recommended. 

 Steeper edging at the start (10b/c), then lower-angle friction moves (10c/d) up higher. The crux may be at the transition between the two, when you are trying to get established on the slightly lower-angle friction section. It might be particularly tricky without the stickier rubber. 

If you have trouble at the cruxy transition to friction, pull past the move--the top friction section is quite fun. 

Location Suggest change

Right of Leeper's corner. The start is just 5-10' left of the start to Hag Crag Crack.

Protection Suggest change

Five bolts, then a bolted anchor.

You can set up a TR from a new anchor on top of the crag, almost directly above Hag Crack. A directional at the lower anchor helps.
