Climb the obvious, steep and strenuous arete left of the dihedral. It is more reasonable when you find the holds for the right hand.


This is the second route from the left.

Hypnotherapy dishes up some steep climbing right off the deck. While the rock is good throughout, it is a tad sharper than the rest at this crag. Tricky and pumpy for 25 feet, the line kicks back after you jam into the flake system. Hands and feet on the arete are both difficult to sus, and mid-arete has a bit of a reach move - unless you can squeeze the bugger to death.

Pretty good route! Fun arete climbing with a difficult to read sequence to gain the jugs, I certainly didn't find it. Maybe next time I'll find some holds!

Still cleaning up, we pulled a melon-sized chunk off down low, and it was raining pebbles the whole time we were on it. Deceivingly pumpy down low to a pretty impossible to read onsight crux (stay right!). There is a good rest before you launch into the crux if you can suss out how to use it.

I enjoyed this route a lot more than I thought, it's pretty cool. Well worth a burn if you made the hike up to climb the Hipster. Has cleaned up nicely, didn't notice any poor rock. 2.5 stars.
