Description

Corgi Magic is a run-and-jump problem to the right of Hepatitis aka Hepatitus, where the wall has been tagged with "Game" in red graffiti. About 3 feet off the ground is a slopey knob. Kick off this, and fire straight up to the jug at about 10 feet. Do the same finish as Hepatitis aka Hepatitus.

Protection

A couple of pads. Also, try to avoid missing the foothold and smashing face-first into the wall.

Thanks for the info, Curtis. That certainly makes sense based on the spacing in the diagram. I've re-updated the title back to Corgi Magic. May 5, 2017

That's correct, Tim. I'll add The Snort soon, as I consider it one of the more enjoyable easy problems at Hammond. May 5, 2017

So Curtis, what you're saying is "Corgi Magic" is the jump start to Hepatitis? Apr 29, 2017

It might be splitting hairs, but I always thought The Snort was a yard or two to the right of this. Instead of topping out using the crack that Hepatitis tops out on, I thought it followed the series of juggy flakes further to the right, around where the guidebook shows the line. Apr 29, 2017

Fancy that. I've updated the page accordingly. Thanks for the info! Apr 13, 2017

This is from the 1995 guide.

This is from the 2003 guide. There are no descriptions, just the old topos. My friends and I did this climb at some point in the early 2000s. We thought it was harder than 5.9 if you jump into it (like you are doing in the video). If you traverse into it, it is more like 5.9/10 if I remember correctly. If you haven't tried it, Goofball is just as worth it as Hepatitus.

Hey Tim, do you have a copy of Boston Rocks? If so, would you mind transcribing the description for Snort? I've tried using Google Books to try to verify if they are the same problem, but I can't find it. Apr 13, 2017

This is Snort. It is an old school 5.9. It has been a problem for quite some time (20+ years) The FA is unknown, but it's nice to see a video of someone doing it. I don't mean to be a dick, but EVERYTHING at Hammond Pond was climbed before you had diapers on! Apr 12, 2017

Nice Ryan! The run and jump was very fun and then you get to do the cool cobble top out on Hepatitis. First try: smash elbow into the wall. Second try: trip over crash pad and fall on the ground. Third try: great success. Sep 4, 2015

Is the "interesting two-finger pocket" the badly drilled pocket??? Apr 24, 2015

Alex Jordan and I were messing around on this line, trying to find a way to make use of the interesting slopey two-finger pocket, when we came up with the idea of doing a run-and-jump instead. We almost gave up after a few attempts, when a dogwalker came by with his canine friends. One of these dogs was the fattest, friendliest, fluffiest, most cylindrical Corgi that has ever existed. His name was Stanley.

Inspired by Stanley's persistent optimism, despite being a walking burrito, we persisted at the run-and-jump. We named it "Corgi Magic" in his honor, as it was his furry spirit that gave me the extra oomph needed to stick the launch.
