Old A Hotie Rock. Photo by Blitzo.


Climbs the straight crack on the left hand side of the formation; the climbing and protection are much harder than appearances might suggest.


Found on the northeast corner of the rock and 20 feet left of Existential Decay (5.12d R), a steep offset crack with 3 bolts.


Small nuts to hand size.
