Named for the boulder cave that forms its roof crux the hermits hideout is a pretty fantastic route with fun varied climbing. Wild moves and good exposure are sure to keep your attention!
Start up a flake passing a couple horizontals to a bolt and a thin crux (10-) entering the hideout. Step back into the cave and stem out until you can move onto it's climbers right wall this will be less scary for taller people. Move out of the cave placing gear below the ceiling then make some hard moves out the roof gaining a good flake at the base of a sharp arête that is formed by the top block of "the stack" (bolt). Pull this with difficultly then take a good rest atop your perch before tackling techy but more moderate climbing up the exposed arête. Clip the anchors and enjoy!
This route can be difficult to clean on lower but if you're used to that sort of thing it is ok. If not maybe have a second clean it. Specifically the cam below the roof.
