Description 

The Hand Me Down adds a couple more interesting pitches of climbing to either of the routes leading up the Tilted Mitten.

From the top of the Mitten downclimb to the left and make an improbable traverse over to a flake. Handjam or lieback up the flake to reach a small bulge with a grassy crack on the wall to the left. Jam past the bulge and then continue up the narrow corner to an awkward belay at the tree.

The second pitch continues up the corner and underclings out the large arching roof with a lot of lichen on the face. Turn the corner and get in the chimney. I'm not exactly sure where the climb is supposed to end. We stopped at a small ledge to the left that had a bunch of rap slings around a chockstone. There is a tree up higher but the rock looks very vegetated getting up to it.
