  • Description 

    The base of the Hobo is cluttered with fallen blocks. The largest of these leans against the East face. You can scramble up this block and down the other side onto the East face or just climb up to the notch between them.

    From there, it is some easy 100+ feet of enjoyable, solid rock, Flatiron scrambling.

    The summit is small and exposed, the views of Stairway and Satan's Slab are hard to beat.

    Descent - downclimb the route you just climbed.

    Protection 

    Standard Flatiron rack.

    4th class I guess. Much easier than Hillbilly and no problem downclimbing.
