My beta photo didn't work, so I'm trying an action...


This route starts right of Pullups to Pasadena by about 10-15'. There is a pretty obvious jug above an arch that is the target of the first few moves. The start is on some thin face with a few edges, and there is a good size sidepull up and to the left.

It's a crux start to use the sidepull, gain the jug, and then continue a move or two up and left to two small horns, then a balancy stand. It's pretty moderate (5.9-5.8) until the topout which is a little dicey on thin slab.

I'll post a picture of the route when I can. The FA (as far as I know) was in 11/2004 by Travis Chamberlain and Louie Lebron, after a hefty amount of beer (Rolling Rock) the night before, hence the name.


You might be able to lead Hanging Hungover on gear, but it would be pretty runout between the horizontal cracks (like many of the climbs on this face).

It is better to use the TR anchors for Pullups to Pasadena
