Description 

Hard start. Climbing above is easier but harder and more sustained than Early Brews. The topo on this site describes this as a 2-pitch climb, but it is a single pitch that ends below the belay ledge of Early Brews. It wouldn't be Hairpin without loose rock, and this route no exception. Be careful when belaying.


Location 

Righthand route on the southwest face of Righthand Wall (directly opposite the climbs on Lefthand Wall). This wall gets sun almost all day. Hike up rocky gully to the right of the wall, then traverse left across some slabs (exposed) and follow trail to wall. Or hike up vegetation-choked gully to the left of the wall (less exposure, more thorns). The climbs are decent, the view is nice, and it's warm in the winter, so the approach is worth it.


Protection 

Bolts & chains.
