Description

The right seam/crack, with overhung face climbing past 4 bolts to a crack finish. Large square-cut jugs and some routefinding, definitely not your typical AH edge-fest.

Location

The right seam/crack on the far left formation of the Hell Wall.

Protection

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

Just like the neighbor, this is a fine route. I found the climbing to be pretty sustained, not realy easing at the top as Russ thought. YMMV, but a good find and would be a good mix to put in on any Alabama or AZ dome days. Nov 14, 2016

We also had no cams or nuts for this one... and the quasi runout topout might get you going. The climbing up there is easy, but don't fall or you will take a lobber. A couple big nuts would go right in there if you have them.

I saw no hold that if gone would impact the route... maybe they are already gone? Anyway, good steep climbing on good rock. Slightly harder than Left Hell Crack, but similar. Nov 14, 2016

This one is probably 10b right now, but there is a very fragile feature at the crux that is going to come off and make the rating harder. Feb 17, 2007
