Hue and Cry
|588 page views|
Boulder out of a scoop onto the arete (don't bother clipping the first bolt, it's too low to catch you anyhow). As the angle eases on the arete, the holds get sparse and small, making for continuous (although easier) climbing. Clip the last bolt before pulling the roof and then make an easy mantle to the top. This was a lot of fun for such a short route. My best guess is 5.9+ on difficulty, hopefully I don't sandbag anyone.
An arete with a scoop out of the bottom and a roof at the top. There is a decent route with a rippled slab to the west. Walk off recommended.
4 bolts to a one bolt anchor (there is another hanger about 6 feet away that can be slung for a backup.

This route name is listed as 'Hue and Cry' and as a .10b in one of the update sheets I got from Outdoor Outlet years ago. I personally thought it was about a 5.8.

I think it depends on if you boulder up the scoop, I came in from the right at the top of the scoop, and i would agree, around 5.8 I did not try to boulder up th scoop.

This route is to the right of "N" in Todd Goss guide book (2006). To get full value, go straight up scoop, and straigt over bolt on upper roof. Roof is easy to bypass if you go left. Rope in beta photo is not on route. You will find two hidden bolts for the anchor above the last bolt.

The first clip is a pain if you don't side step right. My buddy broke his toe slipping off while clipping it, hence my PG 13 rating. A stick clip would easiely fix this.
