|Rabbit Rock - Northeast
Go to the east side of Rabbit Rock and hike down to the large boulder at the base of the wall. There is a significant drop off at the end of the boulder. This is where Hesitation Blues begins. Climb the crack with large face holds to the top of the formation.
This route eats cams, especially in the fingers to hands sizes. A great lead for a beginning climber. Gear to 3".
Bolted anchors sit 20 feet to the right of the route to rappel off. A double rope rappel or 70M rope will get you off the top.

Large cams are nice for the anchor. #3 and #3.5 Camalots.

Perfect beginner lead as stated. Easier and more straight forward than Norma's Book imo. Plus, all trad leaders should be building anchors. Much more fun than clipping chains. rant rant

Definetly approach North not South around the Rabbit Tail. Fun easy lead. Scary exposed walk off, use the chains 25 feet right of the top.
