Hypotension (left) & Beta Blocker (traverse right)...

Description 

An offwidthy start leads to a steep, wide (#3+) hand crack. Halfway up the angle relents significantly and the crack widens to #5 for a while. Finally a couple of nice hand jams end the pitch.

Location 

This is the farthest left route at Heartbreak Hotel. Look for the obvious hand-ish crack in a deep corner.

To descend, scramble generally southwest and then down a steep gully leading to the Hypertension area. The easiest path we found required somewhat exposed low 5th class climbing.

Protection 

A standard rack to a #5, heavy on big hands. There is no fixed anchor.
