BETA PHOTO: I believe 5.8 Start begins in the crack in the low...


5.8 Start is a one pitch route in the Hubbel Guide. Perhaps it was the first pitch for one of the routes above. Climb a hand and finger crack with ledges up to the ledge below Brown Sugar and Gill Route. Build an anchor here. From here, continue up one of the other routes or down climb Easy Corner. We were low on daylight, therefore we climbed up this route and downclimbed Easy Corner.

It has a short crux with ample protection therefore a pretty good first 5.8 lead.


5.8 Start is located on the lower section of the Rightovers below Gill Route and Brown Sugar (see photo).

To descend, either dow climb Easy Corner or continue up Brown Sugar or Scraggles to the top then walk/scramble off to climber's left.


Light rack up to a #4 Friend.
