This is the leftmost route. Scramble up to a block to the first bolt. Use underclings to traverse straight right joining Hypnotherapy at its last 2 bolts and its anchor. 1.5 stars.


This lies on the south face. It is the leftmost route.


5 bolts, 2-bolt anchor.

Fun route... Darren's guide calls it 10b, on the site here it's called 11b/c. Neither felt right. The underclings are a stiff warm up but not 11b/c. Maybe 10++ if you screw up the sequence or are vertically challanged. We'll say 10d.

Awkward climb. if you blow the second bolt, you're in for a bad fall. I agree, neither rating seems appropriate. I'll go 10d also. I recommend sending it, then forgetting about it. Hip-Op is a better warm up (even bolt to bolt if needed), and WAY more fun!

A total POS. You've got the logical Hyponotherapy that is very good for how short it is, and then you've got this POS that starts way the heck left and traverses into the the jugs of Hypnotherapy. The rock is crumbly as hell, and the potential to fall going to the 2nd bolt could seriously mess up an ankle. Avoid even if you've done everything else on the wall.

I kinda liked this route. It's not something I would go back and do again, but it deserved one go. I'd call it 10d. As stated above, be careful clipping into the second bolt, and don't blow it.
