Description

Basically same start as Fortress only staying to the finger crack on the right. Small stems and great finger locks and good stances to pro from. The top is very dirty so try and stay on the rock to the left.

Protection

Mostly stoppers, could use smaller cams. chains at the top.

Hellfire to Fire and Brimstone to Fortress chains provides a nice, steep line with a couple hard sections. Aug 9, 2014

Fun little jaunt. Good protection. To keep it real and not sell yourself short, stay off the big ledge on the right and keep to the face on the left. Best way to finish for sure! Jul 15, 2009

What a great route! This is the Hollow Man of Ferguson Canyon. Plenty of holds on a vertical face that do require balance. Avoid the dirty ledge by grabbing the jug on the right. Bring long runners to avoid rope drag if setting up TR. Jun 10, 2006
