Description:

This is on the west side of Hogsback. It starts in an right facing book. Route finding is a bit difficult. The rock can be crumbly and hard to protect. Take a long look before clibming this to figure out route. There are easier ways to climb this route. 2 1/2 pitches.

3 out of 5 stars good warmup

It could probably be done in 2 pitches with a 70m rope.

5 out of 5 stars Great route!

I have done this route on nothing but a set of nuts. Cams are nice but it is doable with nuts/hexs alone.
