Description 

High quality sport route in middle of Hearthstone. The climbing starts from the 1st move and doesn't let up until just before the anchors. Stay on bolt line or risk disturbing suspect rock.


Location 

Follows arete on left side of Mission Impossible chimney.


Protection 

Bolted. Small cam (camalot .3) be/ 1st and 2nd bolts recommended. Anchors have chains.

This route has awkward movement, loose blocks, and crumbly crimps. Even staying on the bolt line my partner and I managed to pull off a fair amount of rock.

Really, I climbed this with Dave a few weeks ago. I didn't notice any loose rock or crumbly crimps. Dave never said anything about that either. Sure you guys were on the right route? Come to think of it I don't know of any route on the Hearthstone with bad rock. Sure you were at the right rock??

Yep, I'm sure. SQtL-II gives it one star and I agree. It is worth doing if you find yourself under it.
