Description 

Hungover Hangover is a 50 foot pitch halfway up the left side of Black Wall. From the belay bolts atop Rat's Tooth or Touch and Go, look up and spy this impressive looking handcrack!

This crack overhangs a tad, and runs between tight hands, hands and big hands, moving into a pod before swinging out over the slight lip and into slabbier territory.

The granite is highly features, with large cubic feldspar crystals on the face... and inside the crack! I highly recommend taping for this one, it is sharp in there and I got chewed up.

Finishes up above the overhang on some belay bolts. From here you can rap, climb Empty Sky (out left) continue up the big corner (not in guide, 5.7ish) or step right onto the face for a route out there.


Location 

Halfway up the left side of the Black Wall. Access by climbing Rat's Tooth or Touch and Go.


Protection 

Doubles of cams in the tight to big hand sizes. A couple finger sized pieces for the beginning of the crack.

I climbed this again (first time in 6+ years) last night and have to say that this thing is a kick in the pants. While very different than Sanitation crack, it packs the same kind of punch in the 40" of overhanging thin hands.

climbed this in may and had to take because the pain was unbearable and my hand went numb, also helmeted head got stuck in the pod whilst trying to move out. But the hand jams and feet are pretty secure, and takes great gear.just use tape it will make the send must less painful. all in all an awesome route

I'll second the pain/tape comments. Ouch. I'm in no hurry to repeat this one.
