HP starts off a block on the edge of the west face. A short, crimpy start to jugs gives way to solid edge climbing as the route winds left to the arete proper. I had originally installed the route with the intent of knocking it off at the first good opportunity along with the other two routes on the crag. A TNB session at the gym left me with a ripped rotator cuff and fully dislocated shoulder, and no climbing for a while as the shoulder repairs. Bert snagged the FFA without any knowledge of my injury. I guess that's life when we go 'red-tagless". HP is okay, largely very solid, a wee bit devious, and sets up a good TR for the hard stuff on the left.


Furthest right of three routes on the West arete of TSC.


Ten draws and a rope. Double bolt anchor at the top.

Running this route again in September, I'd lean toward 5.11- for the opening sequence.
