Health Insurance is the big right-facing corner just to the right of Pinky Paralysis. It's got a little bad rock and a lot of lichen. There are some sections of enjoyable climbing which make it marginally worth-while.

Start off some blocks and climb the easy offwidth with a hidden lieback-crack on the inside. This leads to varied climbing up the corner through a rotten bulge with bad pro and a scary looking block hanging out. Then some nice fist jamming and offwidth to a ledge. And finally some steep doublecracks up to a big block.

The anchor is a tree with rap slings on it. It would probably be a good idea to bring some extra webbing in case it needs to be replaced. Two ropes or an 80-meter will get you to the ground. We rapped with one 70 and had to downclimb the first 15 feet of the route.


Pro to 4.5" with extra 3-4".
