Description 

This route is located on west side of the small formation south of Rock Hudson and is nothing more than an addendum to that formation. In Bartlett, it is called Hudson Rock. Vogel doesn't have it listed. At one time there were two bolts. I speculate that it was put up during the piton era since protecting it with pins would have been problematic. The bolts were old and either sheared or were chopped- probably chopped. Protection is quite good with modern pro. Climb the obvious right leading crack to the right of the prominent overhang where another route with two bolts is apparent.I found this route to be great fun and deserving of two stars. The rock in the start of the crack is a bit tired so backing it up might be prudent.Downclimb south on easy terrain.

I led this route yesterday. It's a gem-pardon the pun. It protects well; it's a lot of fun and is sustained.
