Description

Climb the obvious crack in the corner of hobo cave. Utilize really good hand jams and the occasional face hold till you reach the very fun, thin lie-back crux. Take advantage of three really good rests on your way up. Then make the final traverse to the anchors on "Animal Husbandry".

Location

In the corner of hobo cave; under the roof.

Protection

Big hands to finger sized cams.

The cave can also be topped out although it would have to be done in two pitches.
