Access to GFNP (Roadside) REQUIRES a Daily Permit MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Sort of like climbing three V3s in a row, Hemisfear climbs up a series of tiny crimps and edges into a hueco about 40 feet up the wall. Short, but sustained at the grade. Being vertical and super crimpy, Hemisfear is a spectacular diversion from typcally steep, juggier climbing in the Red.

Location 

Hemisfear is the first line of bolts left of Hard Left. Start on the boulder, end in the hueco.

Protection 

3 bolts to anchors.

Permit Required 

***Climbers MUST NOT climb at GFNP without a daily permit per person in each group.*** This route is privately owned and requires a daily per-user permit obtained from the Graining Fork Nature Preserve website.
This isn't about just you getting away with climbing for a day without a permit--this is about the climbing community respecting private land to ensure continued access privileges. Don't be selfish--get a permit.

One of the untrodden classics! A unique style for the red; crimps and technical feet on a less than vertical face.
