Located at Hall of Horrors East Wall - Den of Doom, left (west) of Rocky Horror Picture Show and Creature Feature on a short southeast facing brown buttress and face. Face climb up and left on this steep face with nice holds.


Right side of the obvious patina face 200' left of Creature Feature.


4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

Mostly fun climbing on plates with the crux at the second bolt as you negotiate thin face moves getting stood up onto better holds. One star out of five.

The bolts on this have been replaced and are 3/8". Feb 22, 2010

The new miramontes book indicates this route has a bolt anchor and is 5.9. I scoped this route on 2/26/12 and there was new bolts but no anchor. The old bolts were not pulled and someone bailed on a quick link at the last bolt so it looks as if there is an anchor without chains or rings. FYI. Feb 28, 2012
Never have been bolt anchors on this route. Big gear is helpful to set up an anchor. Mar 1, 2012

There was a bolted anchor on top of this two years ago. Mar 1, 2012

There are 2 bolts w/ rap rings on top. I tightened both bolts before rapelling since they were loose. I couldn't tighten one of the bolts enough due to the orientation of surrounding rock and hanger. One fixe and one petzl hanger. The route itself has newer bolts right next to older bolts and rusty hangers. Jan 8, 2015

You have to love the new bolt replacement paradigm exhibited on this route...don't do any real work to do a careful, low-impact job, just slam new bolts in next to the old ones and leave a big mess behind. Disgusting. Jan 9, 2015

yeah, you could clip both new and old bolts, equalize at each stance!

I've never taken out a buttonhead before - ez, or not? Jan 26, 2015

They're pretty beefy buttonheads, but as a bolt type, buttonheads should be some of the easier ones to get back out... maybe. :-)

Those look like the 5/16ths ones (i.e., bigger). I found those very difficult to pull, and have heard similar from others. I've only removed 4 total though, and I had a tuning fork. I remember thinking a 2nd tuning fork would have saved me a lot of time and effort. Jan 27, 2015

This route has been restored to its original condition of 4 lead bolts. All of the old bolts have been removed and replaced with 1/2” SS bolts with rock colored SS hangers. The exceptionally poor bolt anchor that was on top was replaced as well with 1/2” SS bolts, rock colored hangers and links and rings for rapping. Feb 2, 2018
