About The Hoof:

Originally named the footwall as it's just at the base of the Crazy Horse Main face, later, wryly dubbed the 'The hoof'. Nearly always in the shade, in the rainy season will catch the sun after around 2pm. The rock is of very sound quality, a few of the climbs are a little short and lend them self well to a beginner routes. The climbs though have a tendency to naturally sand bag, those that look easy from the ground, often aren't. A slightly overhanging prow runs the length of the wall at about 20 foot, the mantel over this is nearly always the crux on every route. Some careful rope work will also let you link up into multi pitches on the main face of crazy horse (Into the Sun etc). Allowing for some good 3 pitch climbs, and possibly 4-5 pitches with some creative traversing
Approach: A literal stones throw for the main crag. From the main face, take the path towards the furnace, after about 30 foot the wall is on you're left hand side.
Approach Time: 1-2 minutes
