It looks like you can't skip bolts on this one.

Maybe its the angle, but it looks like deck potential at the next clip.

It looks similar to The Monument, in Eldorado Canyon, except that it is closer to the ground and not underclings.

and there's also a healthy amount of slack in the system

When did they start deleting comments? I posted this comment on Jan 23, 2009, which someone evidently removed: "Either I'm completely perceiving this angle incorrectly or someone with way too much time and hardware on their hands bolted and chained a boulder problem? From the photo, it looks like someone standing below the climber could reach up and touch him.

Does anyone know the real story on this one?"

What's up with the Orwellian removal of commentary?

Hell of the Upside Down Sinners is an esoteric climb in an even more esoteric location: The Owl Tor. Like it or not, the amount of effort invested in cleaning and maintaining this area is herculean, even if a bit odd to the un-initiated. Check it out. You might not be disappointed...

And yes, you can touch the climber from the ground at the beginning.

Its the angle. Your not that far off the ground, but you wouldn't deck from a fall. The cave expands down from the angle of yh opening in this shot
