Suggested Page Improvements to Hough's Crack

Description Suggestion

On the North side of the Lower Breadloaf are two obvious 5.7 cracks. Hough's is the right of the two (the other is called Intruding Dike). Climb up the crack with an awkward bulge move, then wander left up higher to a handcrack. Top this out, and set a gear anchor.

To descend, walkoff climber’s right (northwest) down the 3rd class ramp and do a short 5.5 downclimb move OR a very short rappel using the new station midway down the ramp. Some climbers choose to scramble up higher on the formation to descend from the anchors of Mystery Achievement (5.7) or Bloody Fingers (5.10a).
