  • Description 

    Scramble up blocks to a ledge just below the bolts. There are 2 options for the start: you can climb straight up to a broad horizontal between the first two bolts, or start in a corner farther left and clip the first bolt of Hee Haw. Either way, after reaching the horizontal move up right to a shallow left-facing corner with fun moves. The corner ends in a small roof - pulling this is the crux.

    This is a short climb but has good moves for its length.

    Location 

    This route is on the left side of the upper wall of the Clock Tower at Sport Park, just left of Mutant Overload. Note that the routes are very close together here, and there is a 3-bolt direct start to Leave it to Beaver called Beaver Fever. Stay left of these 3 low bolts to do Leave it to Beaver.

    Protection 

    5-6 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor.

    This climb doesn't let off. It's a good climb that isn't a overhung, letting the arms rest a bit compared to all the other climbs in the area.

    The first bolt is the high bolt left of the Beaver Fever. This route was established before Hee Haw. Clip the 1st bolt after pulling up on a jug to the left. Climb up to the left side of a small shelf or "broad horizontal". Hand traverse right on the shelf & stretch up to clip the 2nd bolt. Move a bit more right, & continue up the left-facing corner.

    Hee Haw's 1st bolt is really too low & too far left to protect the start. You would definitely clip Hee Haw's first 2 bolts & then move right on the hand traverse. Hee Haw's 2nd bolt is a bit higher than the 1st bolt on Leave It To Beaver, so this is the more protected way to start.

    This route offers sustained climbing with the crux, past the 5th bolt, reaching off an undercling pinch hold over a small roof.
