Description:

To the right of Gunsmoke. High first bolt, slab start, often mistaken for Tiddlywinks, because it doesnt feel like a 5.10, it feels 5.9. However, Tiddlywinks was desribed in Texas LimestoneII as 5.9x " stacked formation". In 1999, I found Hank's overgrown with vegiation at the base, I trimmed a branch or two and cleaned the route and later got Scott Stiener to replace the crappy chains. All references to Tiddlywinks and photos of Tiddlywinks in this web site are actually Hanks 5.10. Tiddlywinks is still in there, overgrown, no bolts no anchors..no fun.

4 out of 5 stars flashed after a scary fall earlier in the week

Took a 20+ foot fall on lead on Tuesday on this route (my mistake due to passing the last draw). And then flashed it on Friday!

4 out of 5 stars a little bit heady

I don't like the bolt placement.
