Start in steep fractured groove. Not too far up is the first crux which is regretably no fun, though hard. The second crux comes moving left under the roof with some out of place holds. Go straight up to jugs after 4th bolt?


Center Hell Wall.




I do not recommend the straight up finish to this route, instead, traverse left after the 4th bolt for the route "Blindsided". I tried both finishes on 8/21/2011 and found lots of loose rock in the roof pull directly above the 4th bolt. One piece broke in my hand and hit my belayer on the head (he was wearing a helmet). It may be possible to do this safely, but I really don't see the point since all the rock seemed crumbly.

The finish out left is safer and more fun (though tough). Aug 22, 2011
