Description [Suggest Change]

This is a fun sport route in a nice setting. It starts with a 20 foot section of 5.8 to the first bolt, then intricate face climbing on cool crystals leads around the corner to crux moves going left along the roof. A good shakeout on big holds leads past one more tricky section. A moderate runout on pretty easy climbing leads to the anchor.

The Haas guidebook has this route graded as 5.12c. We didn't think it was nearly that hard, and I think it is probably closer to 12a.

Location [Suggest Change]

This is the right-most route on the West face of Hillbilly rock. Start up a nice looking slab to a high first bolt, then traverse left onto the steep face past a roof and three more bolts. After the 4th bolt, go back right to the arete, and finish on easier slab moves.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Bring some stoppers and small cams to avoid the long run-out to the first bolt. 4 bolts protect the hard climbing very well.

The anchor is now bomber with new bolts.

There is all-new hardware on this and the adjacent 12c. A piece or two for the start and a stick clip for the other route are worth bringing up. Mar 10, 2014
