The crux is off the Inferno tree ledge, but the CRUX is the first pitch- very serious. Very good rock and varied climbing. We spent a while on this one. The first pitch is also easily tr'd after doing HTH


Start under the traverse at the start of Hotter. Clip that bolt and 2 ? more then step right into shallow groovy thing with no gear other than a hook. 9+ X-ish. Easier climbing with some gear gets you to the ledge. P2 climbs a series of thin cracks over a bulge to a good belay (or move a little right to belay at the Inferno tree) 11a. Finish up the 5.10thin crack finish to Inferno (nice)


The first pitch is helped by a skyhook, the rest has good gear with wires and small cams. a couple of bolts on P1
