Middle section of the Underworld. Osiris, Persephone, Orcus, Corruption. Dashed line is the line I took to avoid the scary traverse into the crack on Corruption, a fall just before you get to the crac

Comments: Old school .10a, a #4 is nice to have once you step up into the wide area. There is a fixed cam in the way back that you might be able to clip with a long sling. Newish webbing and double biners for an anchor as of today (not mine). There are rest spots, use 'em!

Comments: This was a sustained 5.10 climb. After 5-8 pitches, I started dreaming of more runout 5.9 face climbing! The roof exit is crazy exposed and it seems like a lot of holds are polished?!? Give it a full day, and it can get hot.

Comments: A purple BD TCU will protect the runout to the last bolt. The clipping hold is devious!

Comments: How do people clip the bolt just on top of the bulge down low without going right?? The upper crack is classic!

Comments: Yes, a very nice line but I think that move from the 1st to second bolt on the arete itself is pretty stout for 11a but crazy fun!

The one next to it is still covered in lichen, I scratched a little off.

Comments: Traversing in from the bolt is kinda scary, can't see what you're getting into. I ended up face climbing up left of the bolt for a ways till I came to the crack, 5.9 face climbing but if you blow it before you get gear in the crack you'll probably deck. 2nd pitch is fun but tight hands (more trump hands??)

Comments: Pretty fun route but unless you have trump hands this is a finger crack. Used many .5 and .75 cams. A bit sandbagged at 10a.

Can we change the name to Trump Crack??

Comments: Getting from the second to 3rd bolt is in the 11 range but super route anyway.

Comments: I started left of the bolt line and was anything but mild! Maybe I just missed something big but it was a pretty intense left side pull to a right pocket up pretty high then on to a few dime edges for feet in the middle then easier climbing past the lip. I'd give it 11 plus. Staying right made it easier.

Comments: Anybody here leave an HB Quad off route by about 100' to the right in the eighties or early '90s? I found one in about '95 and still have it! LMK if it's yours, and I'll be happy to get it back to you.

Comments: Some great routes here but def needs some spring cleaning. Bring a folding saw if going in, a boulder rolled down left of the main crag and brought down some small trees with it.
