Heel hook up and left to big holds then one brief, long reach. Follow easy rock to next overhang, which is easier than it looks.


Begin on the right side of the overhang for Hamster Huey.


6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

You can also clip the first bolt of Br'er Rabbit with a long sling to help keep the rope away from your legs.

You can avoid the heel hook at the beginning if you use some holds to the right on Br'er Rabbit. It may not be how the route was intended to go but, it does work.

As Jay eluded, surmounting the first roof around the right side is quite a bit easier. Although it's a better challenge to pull the roof the hard way (10b), it seems contrived to give the route a 10b rating when you can follow the bolts and not exceed 5.9+. Climb it both ways and enjoy.
