Hutch on Early Archaelogist

Seasonal Raptor Closure: Noontime and Midnight Rock MORE INFO >>>


Starts up on the ledge with a move to get on the wall at the overhanging start. Pull over this and continue up the long wall on good edges, staying on the left bolt-line that diverges after the second bolt. You will follow a left-trending crack near the bottom. The route reconvenes with Forearm Confusion at the anchor.


On the ledge, starting with Forearm Confusion

I think this climb deserves more stars. It's a nice, long climb with interesting movement that isn't at all contrived. Don't let the bouldery start keep you off it.
