Description

The complete Towering Inferno has been free climbed in the mid 5.12 range as i understand it. However only the first 3 or so pitches are commonly climbed and referred to simply as "Inferno." Inferno has some of the best rock we encountered in the Rum, and the climbing is excellent on all three pitches. The route climbs a varied crack on the front side of a small pillar on the east face of Jebel Rum. Two pitches lead to the top of this pillar, and another leads up a faint left trending crack system. This last pitch is outstanding. Two ropes to rappel.
