Directions

Partially owing to some guidebook conflicts and ambiguity, the precise line is unknown. The topo clearly shows the line going up the the anchor for Hammer Of Thor, but the text says to go to Hunka Hunka Burnin' Love.

There is lots of space between Hand Crack (which is an obvious line) and Smooth (which has a tell-tale bolt and finishes on the crest of the formation, and so is clear), but precisely where within that area is unclear.

After much deliberation, I believe that the line indeed goes from below the big boulder at the base to the anchor above Hammer Of Thor.

Perhaps this ambiguity is why nobody seems to have done this route in ages, but it is not bad, and we replaced the cord on the anchors up top, so you can rap to the west again, perhaps 80' down.

Protection

Take a standard light rack. You might get a few bits in depending on the line you choose. Uphill, closer to Smooth, there are a few finger crack sections. Downhill, we didn't find much anything.
