This is a spooky and thought provoking crack-dihedral where pro is placed in the crack and most of the climbing is done on face edges. It is an exercise in keeping a cool head and treading lightly. It is a paved highway that if you continue down it you might end up in Hell where the rock is really big, scary , and loose. Entertaining never the less. Thanks to Post Moderate and other long stellar sport routes on this wall, Highway To Hell does not get much traffic, so watch out for loose rock. This is Diablo and The Winter Wall at that. Nuff' said.


This is the obvious dihedral to the right of Post Moderate.


Stoppers, Aliens, Camalots to #3, and trad runners. 2 bolt rap anchor. Get off with two 60 meter ropes [or 1 70m rope].
