Comments: Just a quick FYI on the climbing here. I broke two or three holds here last June. The rock is very brittle and if you fully weight a hold in the wrong spot it can break off. Be aware of this when climbing as often the worst time to break a hold is when you have it fully weighted.


Location: ID : Hells Canyon

Comments: I have heard that this area has been under development for some time (this is from a friend of the person who is developing the area). I think the assumption is a guide will follow when development is complete.

The same person told me the routes are of a higher grade mostly 5.11 and above.

I'm not sure where in Hells Canyon the area is being developed, however.
