This lead route variation replaces what was "Horton Here's a Toprope". Once Horton Here's a Tufa bolts went in, this line became leadable. Stick clip Bolt 1 or human-stick clip it from HHaT. Start under the low profile tufa formation with the slots and climb that (hands staying right of the HHaT bolt line). Or don't be a purist, start to the left to clip bolt 1 and then move slightly right and up onto the slots. At the big jug under the last bolt, pull up and left to the anchors. Beta spoiler: right-hand cross to crimp; left hand up and left to triangular crimp. Right foot rock-on. Right hand bad finger slopers; left foot up?; right snatch flat jug.

3 out of 5 stars leading the former TR route

It took me a while to see that the toprope route was now leadable. Tricky above the roof but better feet and less power than comparable Horton Here's a Tufa!. I was all 11c on the TR, but later Karl urged 11c on HHaT, and he was right...this one is easier.
