  • Description 

    A delicate, traditional line seated in the bosom of East Hellgate. This right-facing, right-leaning corner weighs in at 5.8, but boasts old school flare that demands constant attention. Careful, slow movement make this short route feel about twice as long. The protection is easy to place, but can be tricky to find at times with the rock being questionable in some areas. A single-pitch adventure of epic proportions! Try not to die.


    A single rack of cams up to a #3 camalot or 3.5 inches. Draws and long runners.


    The left-most obvious crack/dihedral.
