One of my favorite routes at HCR. A crimpy, vertical face leads to a ledge and sustained, juggy headwall to finish, with the redpoint crux (for me) being the last move to the anchors. Very cool!

Do this route when your finger tips are fresh.

Pretty cool route! The bottom (vertical) portion of this route is filled with micro crimps and small feet. It's fairly sustained and probably clocks in at a hard 5.10 or easy 11. Once you get to the enormous ledge, have lunch, maybe tan for an hour or 2 (don't forget sunblock) and head up the blocky overhang.

Make some very large pulls on chalked up blocks that never get washed by the rain. After your tired from from all that roof you reach the anchors. This is where the sandstone is quite a bit more weathered (don't be alarmed) and the stance for clipping the anchors becomes one of the hardest parts of the route.

the bottom portion is nothing special, most people flash this part, but make sure to enjoy the roof! Quality rock and tough moves on easy holds up high makes this route worth doing.

consider setting up a top rope and having your buddy climb up to clean your quickdraws to avoid the strenuous clean (if I remember correctly).
