Description

This climb is broken up into an upper and lower section. (Lower Section 160' 10c) P1. Start at the base of HTH heading up to the first bolt then breaking left around the large block to a left facing corner to a ledge with a tree. P2. From the ledge break back out right following up the black streaked slightly dirty face shooting for a flake(this section can be a bit heady). Once you've cleared your head clip a rusty 1/4 inch bolt, and commit to a insecure mantle on slopers and crimps, then continue up to the big ledge. (Upper Section 110' 10b) Head up to a left facing corner then traverse right on a ledge. Finish by clipping up an old bolt ladder.

UMMMMM..... HTH wasn't there for the f/a, so you didn't clip the bolt. Surreal started left of HTH and then kinda straight up past horizontals. The top bolt had broken off sometime after the f/a ..i know because we replaced it for the f/a of Unforgettable Fire in 1987. Jun 20, 2016
