When did they start deleting comments? I posted this comment on Jan 23, 2009, which someone evidently removed: "Either I'm completely perceiving this angle incorrectly or someone with way too much time and hardware on their hands bolted and chained a boulder problem? From the photo, it looks like someone standing below the climber could reach up and touch him.

Does anyone know the real story on this one?"

What's up with the Orwellian removal of commentary? Aug 4, 2010

Hell of the Upside Down Sinners is an esoteric climb in an even more esoteric location: The Owl Tor. Like it or not, the amount of effort invested in cleaning and maintaining this area is herculean, even if a bit odd to the un-initiated. Check it out. You might not be disappointed...

And yes, you can touch the climber from the ground at the beginning. Aug 5, 2010

Its the angle. Your not that far off the ground, but you wouldn't deck from a fall. The cave expands down from the angle of yh opening in this shot Mar 21, 2015
