BETA PHOTO: Hug it. Love it


Starts up a flat face and moves straight over a chunk of rock with large holds on each side as well as a lip on the top. Provides a nice bear hug opportunity before launching into some quality edging up higher.


Starts just a few feet right of Drunk Monkey. Look for the large huggable feature halfway up.

While belaying a new climber they reported that there is a loose block about the size of a microwave halfway up this route. I never personally found saw it so if it is there it is easily avoided.
