Dan at the crux.


This is one of the better slab climbs on Haus Rock. There are some pockets that you will be able to get one to two fingers in as well.

If you are looking to top rope, this climb you may set up on "Feet Do Not Fail Me Now" (5.8) or just walk up the left side of Haus.

If it rains a day or two before you climb Haus, check the rock midway up for wet spots. This particular climb seems to stay wetter than the others on Haus.


This is directly to the right of "Feet Do Not Fail Me Now".


7 draws and a rope.

Fun route--actually a break through for me. The crux has some small chips and a small crack with a hole for your toe; I had to map the holds with chalk to figure it out. The view on the top is great.

Very worth doing with a somewhat long crux. The route tends to feel harder than it is (if that makes sense), so just keep climbing!

Edit: Sometime before 8/2013 a hold broke off in the crux. It's much harder now, some variation of 5.11.
