Description

Interesting wide crack that would be more interesting if it was less dusty. Originally led as a mixed bolt/trad route, but re-bolted because the gear was pretty sketchy (cams in mud and such...). Not really named on account of the difficulty so much as the fact that someone had scratched the word Hercules into the base of the route before we climbed it.

Start below a wide crack just inside the cave entrance on the right wall (when looking into the cave). Scamper up a 15' boulder to the base of the crack, and then do some funky undercling/layback/kneebar combination to get over the bulge and get your feet onto the left wall of the crack. Continue up easier climbing/stemming in the wide crack/corner to 2-bolt belay.

Location

There are two routes on the wall, this one is the left one.

Protection

6 bolts plus anchors
