The business of this overhanging fingercrack might rate three stars but for the long, non-descript top out and the potential to stem off route.

Follow right-leaning cracks for about 30' to a ledge; the entire crack keeps your attention, but the crux is at its end. After the ledge, follow progressively easier and less inspiring climbing until ???. There are no anchors: either arrange an anchor a little below the top and lower or belay from the top.

To descend, either walk off or rap 100' from a single sling around a tree atop Ready for ReedR, about 30' east of the top of Hose Monster.


Discontinuous, right-leaning cracks slightly uphill & east of the road, on the left side of a double corner system.


The crack takes finger size gear (duh) though a #3 Camalot comes in handy near the start. A variety of gear options exist above the crack.
