DescriptionThis wall has several excellent routes that primarily climb on edges (a rarity at the Mohican). In fact, Beezlebub only has a handful of pockets in its entire 60 feet of climbing. The wall is slightly overhanging, making for great technical climbing.
Getting ThereThis wall is the next area past Trail of Tears (about 50 yards or so). Once you hit the T-intersection of the main Mohican trail, walk left for approximately 5 minutes. You will pass the obvious Gully of Biblical Proportions and the even more obvious knife-edge arete of Trail of Tears. Purgatory will be the next good section of rock with a small ledge at the base of the right side of the wall.
