Description 

Sweet Jesus, people! Do this route! After taking down TKO (a multi-session project) I looked right and said, "What the hell, got nothing to do anyway."

Loved it!

This is another example of a really good route that goes for years and years without getting a second glance. Back in the day it had its own start, till someone thought the rock sucked, and now it shares the same start as TKO and shares its first five bolts before heading out right into some really fun territory. It stands to reason if the start of TKO is hard as hell, then going right after the fifth bolt should make this route easier since you skip that weird TKO crux that sends everyone flying off the wall? Right?

Hell No! Right hook is just as bit a 5.12 as anything else I've ever tried. So don't feel that you are pussing out by any means. Get on it and give it props. Or keep trying TKO till your taint gets chafed. Either way, I don't care, just be sure to give Right Hook at least one round before the final bell rings. It is well worth your blood, sweat and tears.

Location 

Right most route on the TKO Wall. Routes to the Right of TKO and Right Hook include The Rally and Bald and Shaved.

Protection 

9 bolts. Be ready for closed anchors.
