Description

The yellow book wrote this one up under the name, "Hell's Creation".

The new guidebook refers to it by its proper name, "Muehl Train".

Either way, you are in for a hell of a good time!

No matter what name it goes by, this is a devilishly fun route located at the edge of a gastly abyss. Starts on good pockets and ledges and quickly works its way up to some crimpers that are guaranteed to become problematic if you have not properly made the first and second clips.

If your finger tips survive the onslaught of nastly feelings, like those akin to what one might experience while touching a flaming pitchfork, roll yourself up as efficiently possible to shallow pockets that might have you second guessing your lease of life. To fall would be bad but to make it past this seemingly enternal torture would be like achieving nirvana. This climb gets better the higher you get. There is a serious amount of ass-kickery in a climb that only requires four clips which have to be made from mean, endurance draining stances.

Get on this climb! Does a hellish-painful experience await you or will you climb from the limestone abyss to the heavenly vistas above? Rope up and sign your name in blood after you puncture your fingertips on this climb meant only for the bold and fit.

Location

Depends. If you aproach this crag by walking past the Trail of Tears wall on your way to Yippie Kiy-Yay, keep walking on the yellow skree at the base of the cliff and stop when you come to edge of a ledge with the shear drop-off. A small, skinny ass tree is set right between two climbs located on top of the pedistal. The route on the left is Hushpuppies and Hand Grenades, which is a 5.11c with a mostly black appearance. Hell's creation is black with the occasional blonde streaks. Hell's Creation has pockets which appear bigger at the beginning and is located to the right of the tree which some people find themselves clinging to for dear life as they make their way over towards Hells Creation.

Protection

Four bolts. Open shut anchors.
