Start up the shallow, bottomed out crack just right of "Hawk's Nest". Parallel sided slots offer decent placements amidst the flaring, shallow crack. The crux comes mid-route with an awkward move through a flare, then a balancy mantle. Gritty choss makes it all the more exciting.


Located 10' right of "Hawk's Nest". Walk-off to the right around the formation.


.5 to 4" (yellow Alien to #4 Camalot) with a double or two in the 1-2" range. Anchor options range from small to large.

Adam - I believe AJ and myself did this route some times ago. About 5.9 and pretty chossy... I think we called it the Rotten Worthless Route (RWR). I'd bet we weren't the first either.

We also did a .10c to the left of Dangling Digit.

Sounds about right... The climbing was kinda fun, but overwhelmed by the choss factor. (I'll be happy to change the name or FA info to whomever wants to take credit for this one ;) )

I think you've got it right at this point! And I like the name.
