Access Issue: Access: Details
For the moment, access to this area by climbers should be from a temporary trailhead/parking area that is located near the old Morrell's Wall Parking Lot area. From there, the new Tom's Thumb Trail leads up toward Morrells Wall, Gardeners Wall and on to Tom's Thumb. Please look for, and use designated climber access trails.
Description [Suggest Change]
You never get too many powerful overhang lie backing routes in the Mcdowells, and hence why this route is classic for the area. Over the Hill follows Mousetracks beginning but breaks right to the ledge next to the imposing right overhang. You get fantastic gear, and then it's time to go full force, and if not fall cleanly through the air on great gear.
Location [Suggest Change]
Over The Hill shares the same start as Mousetracks but breaks off right toward the closest roof with a right arching crack.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Double set from green C3 to #3 Blue C4 Camalot, 1 BD C4 optional and set of small to medium stoppers. No fixed anchors, all natural pro. We rappelled the route with a 70m to the start of mousetracks.
