The left of the two parallel seams/cracks, named after the Mel Cracks at Josh (but here, the left is actually the left route - the Mel Cracks are reversed). Fun, steep, but delicate holds at the start with thin cams for pro.


The left route on the far left formation of the Hell Wall, slightly overhung with a finger crack to start.


4 bolts, pro to 1.5", 2-bolt anchor with mussy hooks.

Well protected and good steep climbing. Nice to see new routes going up utilizing natural protection when possible. Feb 17, 2007

Good climb on pretty good rock. We had no cams or nuts and getting to the first bolt is not that bad. Just don't fall! The rest is well protected by bolts to Mussy Hooks at the top. Nov 14, 2016

Going with 3 stars, the crack start is clean and leads to excellent clipping hold. It looks and climbs like modern bolting methods with thoughtful placements and no additonal pro needed. Even down low, maybe a small cam or nut but honestly, where you'd plug one of those in you'd be set up to clip the bolt anyways. Better than your average 2 star route. Nov 14, 2016
