Description:

This is on the far right of Hogsback. Look for the lone tree. Some sketchy 4th class to get to the tree. You should see left facing corner about 15-20 feet to right of tree. Follow this up past two bushes and you will come to a slight ledge to belay. Thin stuff for the anchor. Follow this up some slightly overhanging blocks (easy)to the top.

4 out of 5 stars Easy start

Easy start good place to get used to shoes and no hands . The climb over the top is fun, lots of wind in the afternoon

3 out of 5 stars straightforward

practiced some low-angle hauling on it. the first anchor is hard to find; but there are lots of options.

5.5? wow, sketchy in some areas, more 5.6 like because of no hands positions and moves. I did the 5.6 end for the climb. not a hard climb but definitely has some hairy spots for a 5.5 climb. Then again I'm not a fan of slabbly friction climbing.
