Description

Hornet 5.7 ( 5.6 PG/ R/ X? see description)

P1 – Pad up the short face (crux, 5.7 PG-R good spotter needed!...then clip a pin driven down into 3" 'ledge') From the small ledge, move up the flake. (Which is somewhat hollow; it takes small-to-medium wire nuts, cams not useful). At the top of the flake step left (natural thread) and climb to the “Bugs” anchor. [see ALTERNATE] 80-90 ft 5.7 PG-R (and 5.6 PG, R or X depending on how good you think the placements are in the flake!)

ALTERNATE: Highly Recommended - As the flake leans over to the horizontal, there is a small, natural thread. Above this, climb straight up passing a SS 3/8" bolt and climb to a belay (#1 and # 2 Camalot) where the dike of Picnic Table meets the overlap. 160 feet 5.4 PG One can also move right to the dbl bolt anchor / rap station of Dick-to-the-Rescue / Table Talk.

P2 The dike finish of Picnic Table, and Bugs.

Location

START: About 20 ft right of “Bugs”, and a few feet left of the remnants of the old log, below a shallow but distinctive right-facing flake which begins about 25 feet up. [SEE PHOTO in "Bugs" write-up]

Protection

Small to Medium wires useful for the crack, flake may be too hollow for cams(??)
