Dan Cohn on the steep, juggy finish to Hatchet 5.1...


Yet another classic 10 on the gold wall, deserves more traffic than it gets. Like T.L. Bush, there is no jamming on this one. The crux is half-way up, but for out of shape slobs like me the real crux is the pump at the top.

Gear is a little tricky the first 20', but the crux bulge protects well. After that, you have a choice of going left or right. I went right. Left looks fun too.


Start 2nd major corner system left of Standard Forks, under a large roof.


3 each black Alien - yellow Alien, 2 each #0.5-#2 Camalot.
