Some enjoyable jug-hauling up overhanging quartzite.

Start up less-than vertical rock to the first bolt, and then immediately start on overhanging rock. Clip the second bolt and power your way up. After surmounting the initial overhang the angle eases a bit but there is still some steep terrain until about twenty feet from the chains (a bit runout over easy terrain from the last bolt).


Near the top of the right side of the gully (just uphill past a lower-angled ramp that angles up from left to right) there are three bolted routes; Hell's Bells is the right-most of the three.


5 bolts, chain anchors.

Really fun jug hauling up the overhanging stuff, then it slabs out after that. Feels easy for a .10a (though I think it still is .10a) just because the holds are so ginormous!

If you grab something and think: "hmmm...that's kind-a small..." you're not on the right hold! Fun and quick.

Yeah...this route is sick. The huge jug that you have to grab onto to hit that third bolt is just insane. That's one of the funnest moves I've ever done. After that, it's pretty cruiser the rest of the way. That move alone makes this a great climb to me though. Feels like cliffhanger.
