Still working on dirty.


To the right of the fallen tree you'll see the obvious overhung route above the dirty mattress. Not sure who put it there or how long it has been there. By my estimates this is probably the hardest route in Hitchiti. You start underneath with a sit start then work up and over slightly to the left. The holds are pretty crimpy.

If anyone has ever climbed this route (I'm sure someone has) I'd sure like to know it just to make myself feel better. The crux hold at the top seems impossible at the moment. I can barely get my finger tips into that crack. You don't have to tell me how to do it, just tell me that it's been done. There's always chalk in the crack but I've never seen chalk over the top.

found a scorpion under the dirty matress and there were plenty of ticks up top crawling around. I did not send but I know it's do-able.

Fun problem that checks in more realistically in the v3-4 range.
