Way hard trad line up the right sie of the face that folks rappell down on trips.

Start on Handsome and well-hung then traverse left around the arete and get a good stance at the bottom of the flake and place some gear. Pull a couple of super hard moves getting out of the flake (move right a little) then grab ahold of some jugs and finish up this beauty.


center of face that people use for rappells.
Between Englishman's and Handsome and Well-Hungng.
Starts on Handsome and Well-Hung and finishes on face to the left.


Well-protected with stnd. rack

There are bolts to protect the traverse from Handsome and Well-Hung.

Yes, TRing is wonderful, isn't it?

I hung my way up this one, but I was able to do all the moves (more or less) without any need for pulling up, or swinging over to a better hold.
