This climb starts off on some steep jugs with a few high step moves and then mellows out on some easy slab. After a couple of low angle slab moves the features disappear and the climb steepens. After the steep crux, finish on a nice jugy arete over the top.


This is the center route on The Hostess just left of the arete.


This is a top rope climb that requires some webbing to set up a rope.

Fun route with a tricky finish. This route could use a little cleaning as there is a lot of sand and moss at the start.

Can confirm that the route is a bit sandy, with small bits of rock falling off on some spots (make sure your belayer wears a helmet). It is a fun route though. You can use the tree on top to rig a toprope anchor using a 30-40 ft piece of webbing, and/or sling the tunnel in the rock just above the lip.
