The left of the two parallel seams/cracks, named after the Mel Cracks at Josh (but here, the left is actually the left route - the Mel Cracks are reversed). Fun, steep, but delicate holds at the start with thin cams for pro.


The left route on the far left formation of the Hell Wall, slightly overhung with a finger crack to start.


4 bolts, pro to 1.5", 2-bolt anchor with mussy hooks.

Well protected and good steep climbing. Nice to see new routes going up utilizing natural protection when possible.
