5 out of 5 stars Hair Lip

Hair Lip is a wild and unique feature that just begs to be climbed! Protecting the crack in the beginning can be a bit tricky. I think I climbed past some of the best placements because I wanted to get to a stance I saw up higher. It took a bit of fiddling with small nuts and my belayer had to toss me up an orange tcu before I finally got in some adequate gear and felt like I wouldn't deck if I fell off the slab leading to the first bolt. Out on the lip I was having too much fun to be scared. This is one of my favorite pitches of climbing that I've done.

4 out of 5 stars bolts should be replaced

I will pay for new bolts/hangers if you will show me how to pull the old ones and place new ones.

Excellent route. Easy for the grade, but tough for the head!

This climb could be best rated with the British rating system. Great climb and will never get anything like it sport climbing.
