05. Children's Crusade Wall

New Hampshire > Whitehorse Ledge

Description

From the Echo Roof Area continuing along south passing Ethereal Crack(5.10d), you pass an easy corner, the first pitch of Belezebub. The black wall beyond split by a left-angling dike is the Children's Crusade Wall. The walls upper section is steep with many large roofs. Expect to find techy face climbing and on the full length routes some difficulty overcoming the roof sections.

This is a warm cliff due to the blackness and exposure to the sun.

There are three nice full length routes Children's Crusade (5.9/5.11a, many people rap before the crux pitch), Total Recall (5.11b), The Eliminate (5.11c). There are also some nice shorter routes, so have fun.
