Description

Pronounced Honey Coomb
From the semi-hanging belay, climb the slabby finger crack past a short boulder problem to a stance. Jam the sweet locker finger and thin hand crack (classic) up to the hanging block. A horizontal splitter and exciting mantle to the left (crux) will allow you to avoid the bombay squeeze. From the stance next to the hanging block, wrestle your way up and right through the wide crack to easier ground.
The beginning of this climb might have been done before but the exciting exit out left was near impossible before i cleaned it.

Location

First crack system left of surprise. Rap down to a small ledge on a steep face with thin pro for an anchor.

Protection

Doubles from thin to #1, and one #2

[Hide Comment] Maybe it was just the company the time and the place, but I followed this route and thought it was other-worldly, with amazing movement and preposterous situations. Dreamlike. Do we think those blocks will stay around a while? I sure hope so. All the stars. Jun 12, 2017
