Description [Suggest Change]

Start as for Hotter Than Hell but move left up the blank corner to a wide crack/ huge block. Surmount the block and clip a bolt on your right, then make thin moves past the bolt and clip another bolt. Move up on easier albeit runout ground to a pin in a horizontal, clip the pin and move left slightly to another pin in a crack. Follow bolts straight up on thin and delicate face moves to a horizontal crack. More thin face climbing passes a bolt to a mantle/lunge for rock spike. Traverse right to trees for anchor.

Rappel off fixed Colder Than Hell tree anchor.

Location [Suggest Change]

When directly below Inferno, walk left until you are almost in a dirt gully. Directly in front of you will be a 5.7 slab with two bolts. This can be either the first pitch or you can walk up the gully a ways and traverse to the Hotter/Colder Than Hell start ledge.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Small to medium cams, nuts, and runners.


FWIW, this route's actual name is "Cold Day in Hell." Jul 6, 2007

I like this route more than I like Hotter than Hell. Great moves, good gear and a nice new direct start. Well worth it! Oct 25, 2011

My friend and i climbed this route today, what a full value 5.10! I would recommend this one to anyone solid on 5.9 slab through the 5.10b/c grades.

There are a couple brief rests, some good feet (a few anyway) allow you to stop and route find because in the sun especially the overall route finding can be just a little tricky, climbs great though! There are some older bolts well up the route that I originally aimed for only to see a new set a bolts more left. Aside from a brief rest or two its 5.10 slab/face nearly full length 70 meter climb.

Makes you think, work for it and is about as rewarding as it gets for consistent 5.10 slab/face climbing. Get it! Oct 15, 2016

It's the same exact style as Hotter than Hell, but half a grade harder. It's well protected with almost all bolts, and just a few pieces of gear. If you are wondering, this is a true modern 5.9+, definitely not the old school 5.9+. Nothing to be intimidated by if you are solid on Hotter than Hell! Get on it Nov 2, 2016
