3 out of 5 stars Way easier than it looks

I went straight up after watching the moves, rather than going right for the obvious jugs. I would lead this one.

Onsight Onsight ascent by: tharris242 on 2011-08-16 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars First HCR route.

Didn't care much for it during the onsight, but after finding the right beta on two subsequent TR sends I quite liked it. Don't get spooked by all the long-legged spiders. You'll know you are at the right spot if you can find the little copper tab screwed onto the face that reads, "Around The Fur 5.8."

Spoiler: For the OS I went left of the lower bulge and missed the undercling beneath the dueling chickenheads. It was so much nicer going over/right of the bulge and using the undercling--I still can't believe I missed that--it is so obvious.
