Description Suggest change

This is one of the longer face climbs in the park with a distinct crux just before the anchor. Mark Howe was inspirational in sharing his knowledge of Hailstone and was the first to explore variations of this route in the mid -1990's.

Location Suggest change

As one approaches the crag from the trail below Hailstone Rock this is the first fully bolted route on the right side (lowest point) of the western face. This route shares the start of the Doc's Holiday gully route, but stays a few feet left of the arĂȘte after the start. Belay from a small flat area of the trail slightly right of the line of bolts above. The first bolt is about 25 feet up the low angled face.

Protection Suggest change

Pass 7 bolts to clip the chain anchor at the top of the formation.
