  • Description 

    Route trends right at the start and then straight up through steeper terrain on great edges past bolts on vertical face.


    The Hell is For Children area is in the South Face of Tower One. Hike up approach trail until you hit the cliff and a large, dead stump. Step over stump and head East for about 75-100'
    The route is the farthest right of the 4 in the Hell is For Children area.


    6 Bolts to 2 bolt anchor
