This great climb, as I recall, keeps your attention the whole way up.  Photo: Ely, 2008  Nearing the belay.  Photo: Ely, 2008  Biohazard.  2008, photo Ely.  'Iron Cross' is the line marked with a 'D' on the far right.  Geoff Fararr, aka Carderock Geoff, picking his way up Nubbin Face on Hades Heights in Dec. 2013 - a routine of his for many decades.  Geoff showed all of us the holds and tricks of this, his local rock, year in and year out, like the seasons.  Now it is up to his friends to keep up his tradition, at least as well as we are able.
