Climb the bouldery start to a delicate layback up a thin left-arcing crack. Come face-to-face with the crux bulge and pull past two bolts on steeper terrain to a two-bolt anchor.


Second route from the cliff's left side.


Nuts, Small cams, and two draws.

It appears that this route was first freed in 1991 by Randy Gagne and James St. Jean and was Named Dukes Of Hazard. Later the route was thought unclimbed and the crux-bolts were added. See neclimbs.com for more.

What's up with the first bolt being clippable from the ground and next to a crack that can take gear? Fun climb, but short.

It's the New Wave of climbing Tiff. Climb your favorite cracks now before they are bolted to make them safe. And just remember "you don't have to clip them if you don't want to".
