For the sport variation, ascend the buttress using a broken crack, being cognizant of the tree behind. Positive in-cuts appear as the buttress gives way to a slightly undulating, green face. Follow bolts up moderate terrain with an abundance of deep flakes. A shallow scoop with fewer features and a perplexing finish earn the grade.

While none of the flakes broke during our visit, thoughtful selection of which features to use is recommended. I may have just been paranoid as this was our first climb of the day.


Hoagie Crease is the furthest right route on the west face of the Sandwich Spire. To the right are two sport routes on the south face, The Big Apple and Wish Sandwich. To the left is New York Goes To Chicago.


This climb has two starts:
  • Left: Sport. Bolts and chains.
  • Right: Mixed. Gear to three inches recommended.
