IDK what this route is called or what the rating is? There are number of fun, easy, family-friendly single pitch routes to the left/Northeast of Better with Bacon (BwB) that I can't find online or in any of my guidebooks. These routes are good for beginners, but could use some traffic to clean them up a bit. Please, would somebody in the know improve on this post? HMR-7 stands for "Hogwild Mystery Route #7" because of my ignorance. You can start in the corner pictured, or in a thin crack just left of the corner. From the top of the corner, splendid thin dike-hiking takes you past 4 bolts and an optional 0.6" cam placement to the chains. The bolts are where they are needed, a bit run out on easier terrain between. The route finishes on the same ledge as the first pitch of BwB and would serve as an alternative start to BwB without the micro-brassie nutting. (but who would want to miss that?). Please be CAREFUL descending this route! I think it is about 37 meters. Even using a 70 meter rope it would be really easy to get dropped lowering off. There is a ledge running over to the base of BwB that makes the final down-climb a cinch.
Starts at a right facing corner crack just a few yards left (NE) of the first pitch of Better with Bacon (BwB). There are about 6 more fun, easy routes to the left of this one...
