Description

The central area at Fairfield has the highest density of quality, longer and near/past vertical lines. Classics include Born X-Eyed (5.9), Youth Culture Killed My Dog (5.9), Chainsaw Willy (10d), Have Mercy (10c), and Hellzapoppin (11d).

Getting There

The approach trail from the dirt road leads to the far right side of Fairfield Hill East, as does the approach from The Wilds of the Main Wall. Either way, hike left along the base of the slabby routes of Fairfield East, past several breaks in the cliff line, past several short TR style sections of cliffs, to an expansive section of taller cliffs (60+ feet). Hellzapoppin and several other lines are on the first longer section, followed by a shorter inset section of cliff with lines such as Have Mercy. The next longer section of cliff has the distinct left facing layback of Chainsaw Willy. You have seen 3/4 of Fairfield Central by the time you have reached this line.
