Hellbound II

5.8+, Trad, 60 ft,  Avg: 1.7 from 17 votes
FA: unknown
Colorado > Golden > N Table Mountai… > Overhang Area
Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details

Description

This climbs better than it looks. The crack is pretty wide but not many jams are needed. There are face holds that are good for stemming and it is possible to chimney between the dihedral walls. At the roof, step to the left and climb a few moves to the anchors on Smear Me a Beer.

Location

This is the crack set in a open book dihedral between Smear Me a Beer and This Ain't Naturita Pilgrim. The crack is capped by a roof. Descend from the anchor on Smear Me a Beer.

Protection

Standard rack. A #4 Camalot was nice to have on this one. Anchors are on Smear Me a Beer.

Nice hand jams in the back of the dihedral with chimney moves for the feet.

[Hide Comment] The guidebook called this 5.9+, but there is no way. 5.8 sounded about right. It was funner than it looked from the ground with jams, chimney moves, and jugs at the overhang. Much easier than Big Dihedral at .8. Nov 24, 2018

[Hide Comment] If it weren't for the mounds of pigeon crap (and pigeons...) in this, it would be a classic line. Fun movement and good pro. Dec 1, 2018
