What a Hunk!

Description 

A super classic high slab, satisfying and exciting. Tricky and technical climbing down low on small edges leads to easier, but committing moves on good holds to the top. Superb!

Location 

On the north (uphill) face of 'The Hunk', this line starts low and right and trends up and somewhat left, following a clear and aesthetic line.

Protection 

Some pads and a spot to keep you out of the bushes should things go awry.

The crux down low felt harder than a V2, but up high the climbing gets a lot easier, which is especially nice given the height (fun highball!!!!).

Highball! Holds get better as you move up but the crux is definitely down low with the crimps.

This might be the best moderate in Bishop.
