Description

Start either direct by climbing through the overhanging start or you can by pass the overhang and enter from the left of the crack. This route has a little mix of hands, fist, to off width. Don't let the off width scare you away, it has good hands deep in the back.

Location

You cant miss this climb, it is the only visible crack on the south side of The Hood. Can be seen from the OHV trail.

Protection

Take a normal rack from .75 to 4". Throw in a few additional #3's. Rap anchors are located at the top and left of the crack.

5.9 to a 5.6? relative ? Too what your ego? we rate them to the grade so people don't get hurt Apr 2, 2017
fun route, good warm up if your walking by. It seemed more like a 5.6 than 5.9 but I guess its all relative. great route guys thanks for putting the anchors in Feb 3, 2017

Mostly hand jams! And pretty fun.
Easy to set up a top rope as well, you can walk to the top of the formation by going climbers left and then behind the "hood" on top. You'll come out right next to the anchors. El Naranjo is also right there and easily top roped. Nov 21, 2016
