A fun toprope and practice for offwidth.

Description 

I am not sure of the original name. I called this Herman's Head, because the block reminded me of Herman Munster. If you know the FA info and original name, please let me know. I could not find this in Hubbel's book.

This is the same crack as Scorpio Crack but on the north side of the block. The rock is really rotten, but it is still a fun offwidth climb. As you go up, the rock becomes more rotten, and the crack wider. The crux is about 15 feet up, where the crack widen's beyond fist.

With more traffic, this could be a pretty good climb.

Location 

This route is on the north side of the crag. From the road, walk about 255' to a firepit, then go to your right down to the gully. Look for a slight path through the brush to the broken rock at the base of the climb.

You can either rappel off the anchors, or rappel from the two eye bolts on the east face.

Protection 

Big cams, up to 7"!!! There are two ring bolt anchors at the top.
