This short pitch starts with the crux just off the platform. An overhanging hands move starts you off to quick tips, back to hands, and then wide hands and fists...all in 35 feet. It stays at 10a because of good feet. If combined with Monkey Wrench and Screw, you have a classic three pitch route that is dominated by beautiful hands.


Once atop the upper platform of Screw, Best Man, and Zipper...this crack will be the first real vertical crack to the left. A 5.4 called "Hair of the Hare" is located just next to HOTD and is an obvious ramp.


Tips, hands, wide hands. Walk off North.
