Description

The Torture Chamber area has both bouldering and short top ropes. There are some well known classics, but to be fun, you can climb up all over the ridge to set a top rope. It is primarily bouldering at the top of the ridge, then as working down the ridge towards S-Crack and Nemesis Tower, it is more TR due to height (25-30 feet). Classics include the Torture Chamber traverse, Borgman's Bulge, and S-Crack (TR).
