It's a little tough to stay on route through the closely spaced corridor that contains Firewater through Highway to Hell, especially for those top-roping and not so attentive to bolts. Some hesitation may arise after clipping the penultimate hanger on this route, the one on the prominent protuberance. From your stance, likely underclinging with the right hand, the anchors for Highway are just below your feet on the right and the last hangers for Hot Pockets are starting to trend left toward the anchor shared with Firewater. What you can't see is another bolt over the prominent bulge above and anchors set back in an alcove. Without cutting off the top of the climb, a top-rope will see some friction, but little in the way of edges. Aug 1, 2008
