Description

What a radical, monster addition to this special area and wall. Hell or High Water starts on a breezy bulge, into some technical crimp-nasty goodness about 30 feet off the deck. The vertical, technical nature of this rig continues through a thoughtful and delicate crux, just below the bailout anchor, and into a long hand crack. From here, you can run it out about 30 feet to a cruxy boulder where you may just be able to clip an extended draw or plug a couple of .3"-1" cams to protect a scary whip. I only brought a couple of large nuts (see what I did there?), one of which I placed at the top of the crack with a runner, the second I placed in the obvious hole about 2/3 of the way up. Once you move into the boulder, it's on, with minimal returns on the delicate rests. However, you're coming out to a no-hands, so no big... right? WRONG! This b-boy will chew you up and spit you out for another 40 feet, offering sharp, stacking pockets and thumb-only gastons to relieve the building pump. Love!

Location

Obvious mega line in the middle of the right-most head wall on the Winter Wall. There is a large "X" in the center of this wall. Hell or High Water runs through the "X" and past a wide, horizontal hole about 2/3 of the way up. There is a 30-foot hand crack that runs under this hole about 20 feet, just above the midway anchor.

Protection

18 or so bolts and various options for gear (0-4 placements, either cams or stoppers).
