Seth Tart in the crux of Hercules!! Chris Huffine ...

Description 

Hercules is currently the hardest route at Moore's and one of the hardest in the state. This obscure, rarely repeated (has it even been repeated?) testpiece was originally bolted by Porter Jarrard. It climbs a direct line up the steepest part of the Hanging Garden wall with a thin, powerful, nearly footless boulder problem (V9ish) to better holds with some huge throws up high for added value.

Location 

On the Hanging Garden Wall. Shares the first bolt with Zeus then moves right. There is a direct start (2 bolts on the right) that looks quite vicious.

Protection 

7 bolts

Hercules was originally bolted by me back in 1990. It was supposed to be an open project, especially for Harrison Dekker. Seth did it and kept all my quickdraws as trophies (I would like to have them back, especially the real big bent gate one.)

New anchors added Aug 2013. Some of the bolts could use replacing.
