One of my favorite routes in The Hills! A Ballancy face start leads to a small left facing dihedral. Pull a small roof at the top of the dihedral and traverse right about 10 feet (take care-not protectable-but easy) to gain a beautiful splitter finger to hand to large hand crack! Multiple Cruxes just above the first bolt,at roof of dihedral and midway up the crack.


On the Political Gamblers Wall-Look for the 2 bolt start leading to a left facing dihedral. Rapel from Two bolt Chain anchors one 70M rope


2 bolts low. then Look for the crystal placement just made for a .5 Camalot! sling your gear at the traverse to avoid rope drag! this route takes amazing gear. One set of stoppers-.3 to #3 Camalots. Doubles 1-3 if you want to sew it up. Bolted Chain Anchors at top left.
