This is a great warm up climb on Haus. There are some tricky looking sections on the way up. At the top, there is a small overhang.

You will need to set up a top rope on this climb. To do this, you will have to walk around to the left of this climb and hike up the side of Haus Rock till you reach the first set of chains.
Just below the chains is a nice ledge where one can also learn to rappel.


This is the leftmost climb on the Eastern side of Haus.


Rope to chains.

It has now been bolted.

Bolted now. 3 bolts to chain anchors. New route just left, 5 bolts on easy arete to same anchor as Not Lichen This. See new post on main Keystone area.

It seemed like there is some groundfall potential when clipping the third bolt on insecure moves. The overhang is way fun to pull. It's probably safer to TR this route.

I've never seen a route with more glue holding rocks on. It is a clever move to the overhang and above, but how much more will have to fall of before it is too dangerous a route?

Fun overhang, but felt harder than an 8, I rated it 9-. We may have been over left of the easier line? We saw a bunch of glued holds to the right, but we went up through an undercling left of the bolt line and did not climb the glued hold line.
