West of Hell
|224 page views|
One full route left of the Citadel. The first half of this route is not great quality rock. There is a difficult sequence between bolt 3 and 4 involving a long reach to a right hand crimper and then crossing through to a left hand sidepull and up to a right hand jug. One more bolt leads to a large horizontal that splits this section of the cliff. You get basically a no hands rest at the break.
After this the rock quality and the quality of movement improve drastically. There are 3 sequential sequences up the headwall separated by fairly decent rest stations. Expect to be reaching far between positive crimps, gastons, sidepulls, and pockets. The route sneaks left after the last bolt to the anchor. Overall a quality line, even if the start is a little crumbly.
Twelve bolts to a two bolt anchor with rings.
