Description 

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.

Location 

This is on the South side of Haus Rock.

Protection 

Fixed chains at the top.

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

Everyone that wants to the the 2 pitch rap for the top rope set up, please don't do any stupid shit. My friend rapped off the end during the rap.
P.s. knot your ends!!!

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.

Preface: this was my first time touching anything in the 12 range, so my opinion may carry little weight. But still, I didn't think any of the individual moves were harder than 11b. It's just that there were 20 in a row!

You're right, none of the moves are harder than 11b, but 20 moves in a row without a rest and it starts to feel like a 12b. By the way, it looks like we were both climbing at Lime Creek on the 4th of July.
