Passing the overhanging flake before the crux

  • Description 

    Start off by climbing in a short dihedral to the first bolt. Then climb the juggy overhanging flake to find yourself under the crimpy crux. The crux features 10 ft of 5/5 star climbing but the short nature of the climb takes away from the overall aesthetics of the climb. Definitely a worthwhile climb.

    Location 

    Furthest right route on Hank's wall. High first bolt with a close second bolt.

    Protection 

    4 bolts. Anchors are pre-hung with steel carabiners.

    This route would get 4 stars if it were 30 or 40 feet taller. Definitely worth a tick if youre in the area. One of the best 10+/ 11- crux sections in the whole park.

    It says it's the furthest right route on the wall, but it's actually the second from the right, just to the left of Hanky Panky (11b).
