Description 

A fun route in the Centerpiece Area of Hackberry Creek. The route starts out easy and gets progressively more difficult as you ascend.

Climb an easy face past 3 bolts to a ledge. From the ledge, continue climbing past 6 bolts to two anchors with chains.


Location 

This route is up and to the left of Dacite Conspiracy on the east face of the Centerpiece Area. From the base of Dacite Conspiracy, climb/scramble up along the base of the crag passing a vertical chimney/chute. Just to the left of this chimney is a line of older coldshut bolts denoting the climb Right On (5.9). Centerpiece is the next climb on the left of this face with older coldshut bolts (just to the left of a line of modern, sandy colored stainless bolts not listed in the Karabin guide or topo).


Protection 

9 bolts
