One of the most popular climbs in the canyon. Can be seen from, the parking lot. Can vary from wi3- to wi4 (maybe) depending on the line you choose. Usually gets a lot of heavy traffic, so easy first lead can be done here usually.
Climb is 50M so it can be either climbed as 1 or 2 pitches. Need 2 ropes to rap the route from the top, or 1 rope for 2 raps.
Either walk left of G1 traverse by the wall and up the trail. Solo a short ice step or scramble over dirty rock step and continue up the trail (which is usually well packed). Turn right and hike another minute to the base of the climb.
Another approach is from G1 area. Turn right from the base of G1 and hike to G2. When facing G2 turn left on the trail which follows the base of the wall. Hike for 3-5 minutes to the base of Hang Over. Which is hard to miss.
Ice screws. To your comfort and depending if you are doing it as a one or a two pitch climb.
