Laura peering into the Crystal Ball


On the South side of Haus Rock, start on an undercling and climb an obvious, diagonal seam up and right to hanging chains. An optional and exciting move to a jug past the chains adds a little bit of spice to the experience. Grabbing the chains to clip the anchors is bad form. There is also a direct start a few feet to the right of the traditional start which also goes at 12b but is a bit easier.


This is on the South side of Haus Rock.


Fixed chains at the top.

The crystal ball is in the last quarter of the climb, not the start. What are you talking about?

Climbing Haus Rock November 29th with no snow in sight. Crazy! Sure beats sitting around wishing It would start snowing so I could go ride some powder.
