Description 

The Haulage, or “World’s Hardest Variation” as some call it, shares the first four bolts with the World’s Hardest 5.12. The four bolt opening section has fun climbing between slopers and jugs. The 5.12 section hits you right after the two routes diverge. Follow the left bolt line through a steep section of rock. Move up the 20 degree overhanging wall with a series of dead points and hard lock offs between slopers and edges. The crux sequence is 10 moves long and allows no margin for hesitation. The moves are hard, but very straight forward.

If you like soft falls you should leave the first bolt unclipped and place long draws or slings on bolts three and four. Short draws get the rope wedged in a crack and results in a not so fun abrupt catch. The route gets shade around 2:00 p.m.

Amazing route. The headwall movement is pure fun.
