  • Description 

    Phantom of the Opera is another superb pitch at Lower Hawksbill with varied, steep, and clean climbing and challenging yet reliable gear. Similar in style to its neighbor, the Fat Lady, it climbs the entire wall in a single, pumpy pitch.

    Phantom of the Opera starts with the same 5.8 corner as the Fat Lady but climbs directly above the corner, past a modern bolt into a thin seam with powerful movement. Above the seam, it again joins the steep original finish of the Fat Lady to the double-bolt belay/rappel station at the top of the wall.


    Location 

    Phantom of the Opera shares the start with the Fat Lady then climbs the seam directly up.


    Protection 

    A wide range of gear: RPs, a larger stopper or two, TCUs, and Camalots up to a #3.
