Description 

This popular TR goes up the huge hump in the wall. By placing a picnic table at the base of the climb, you can make the start easier. Begin at the bottom-right of the hump and climb up toward the center. Top out through vertical bucket climbing. According to the 1972 guide Sandstone Climber, "every inch of the Camels Hump has been climbed."

Location 

Goes up the huge hump in the wall to the left of Drunkard's Crack.

Protection 

Standard Rack, possibly some smaller pieces, not the easiest to protect. Usually top roped.
