Birds eye view over Super B


This is a direct route on the main face of Boulder 3. It starts in the middle of the No Good Ending traverse and goes straight up to the highest point of the boulder.

It starts off on the cracked and juggy face that turns into an almost smooth face about half way up. The midway point is a small ledge that makes for an awkward mantle. The crux is next with a a small vertical edge to crimp on to the right and a horizontal pincher straight up. This one is a lot about balance and not straight power.

It's a really fun route and probable my favorite now in Hitchiti. The top out is a little sketchy but like always the Chiti rock is super grippy and there is plenty there to get you over the top after the crux.


Two pads would be best but one will do as long as you hit it. The fall from the crux is a pretty good one but your mainly coming straight down. You wouldn't want to miss the pad or hit an edge and twist an ankle. There is a tree up top that makes for a good top rope anchor if you like. Just take the necessary precautions to protect the tree.

A guy named Hank Rankin climbed a route he named Super B in Hitchiti and I believe it's this one that we repeated. Hank if you check this site.....let me know if this is the right route and I'll keep the name.

Yes thats it, 5+ seems a little strong to me, im thinking more like 4. there is a variation that starts the same, goes left on rail to crimps to a slopey top out like six feet left of the Super B top. never named this problem, V4 maybe? i havent been there in a long time

Really enjoyed this problem. Felt v3-ish to our group, definitely a problem everyone coming to Hitchiti should pull on.

Great move and nice line up this boulder. I'd say it goes at a solid V2.
