David cookin' up Hobo Hash.


This route is better than the name implies. Great steep moves on an arete lead to a fun crux in the first 30 feet. Continue past a contrived section where you can choose to avoid, or use, features right of the crack that merges temporarily with the arete. Finish at the Gandy Dancer anchor.


Just right of Gandy Dancer.

Tricky grit stone style climbing, and kind of in your face.

I found and cleaned a few more holds down low to keep it real. Higher up, I dabbed to the right for one hold but don't tell anyone. This and Gandy Dancer make a nice pair as a 2for1.

Do I stay left do I stay right. Fun climb if you don't let yourself worry about where you"should" be climbing!

So true. It's got a really nice flow when you repeat it. Makes a great quick TR after doing Gandy Dancer.
