Just left of Hoffa Finger, this route slabs out a beginning and works through corners and roofs. The best part of this climb is the roof with a hand jam move to pull it. Very fun route.


6 bolts and anchors. Although bolt 2 is smashed and unusable. In it's current state it is runout as you will deck before bolt 3. It shares anchors with Hoffa Finger, so with a flip of the rope, one can TR this until that bolt get's replaced.

The second bolt is smashed from rockfall. I ran the first 3 bolts on Hoffa Finger and then traversed under the roof to avoid the deck fall potential runout on ID. Nice climb. 1st roof is crux.

Anyone thought about replacing this bolt/hanger? I would if I had the tools/expertise...

I have no idea why this only gets one star in the Ruckman guide. The "character building spike move", as described in the guide, was SO FUN! The crux handjam was a bit rattly for my small hands, which only added to the excitement.
