Description

Start at the toe of the wall at the river bed and head up cracks to shared anchors with route #1, Cold Day in Hell

Location

Listed as route #2 on the Styx area route topo

Protection

Small to medium cams and nuts to two-bolt anchor way up there. Two 50m ropes are needed for safe rappel. Reportedly a single 60m will do the trick but requires a bit of scrambling up to tie in. Use caution and/or tie a knot in the end of the rope for safe lowering.

Pro can be tricky, but if you have a lot of small cams or nuts you should be fine. Apr 15, 2013

When we did this we used a single 60m rope. There will be some downclimbing if you rappel this way. For toproping we found you just needed to climb up a few feet before you tie in. Apr 27, 2009

Fun route! Crux moving past the yucca high up; this felt harder than 5.7, but there are lots of options, and I probably chose poorly. Jul 21, 2008

3-18-07 I thought I was climbing Cold Day...folllowing directions from Beverly's guide. I started at the very toe, which the topo shows very close to Path of Charon. Then went Directissima...straight up to meet Minion at the top. a great route at 5.8+....really enjoyable and fairly long at ~135ft. Mar 21, 2007

If you only have one 60m rope like I did, it is possible to get down from this route by doing rapping first to the Lethe anchors, then a second rappel down from there. Mar 13, 2007
