H.I. follows a very thin seam up to a block. Go up and left or directly over to a rest stance. Follow delicate crack/face moves to rap rings at the top.


Located just left of Tainted Love on the Winter Wall.


Trad rack with small gear for thin section down low. Long runners to help minimize rope drag.

Finally got up the nerve to lead it; skittered off the thin starting section and blew the redpoint. It's been so long since I'd climbed this one, I'd forgotten what a great line it is. The face above the roof has a few tenuous moves, but it's well protected (better than I remembered). Recommended!

NOTE: High Infidelity has its own bolted anchors now, no need for using the anchors on Tainted Love.
