BETA PHOTO: 20 No Way In Hell 5.8


A fun trad route on a fun wall. No Way in Hell climbs a flake system up to and around the right side of the center roof on Ed and Terry. It then goes to the slot up and right of the roof, and finally climbs up a small, broken crack system to the anchors.

The start and end bits are easier than the rest, but the whole route has positive edges and good feet. There didn't seem to be a real crux; after the start the climbing was similar until right before the end.


This route starts to the right of the Main Crack up an obvious serrated flake system that is located under the right side of the center roof.


Small to medium nuts and a small cam or 3 (I placed a #.75 C4, a #2 C3, and a #0 C3 (that wasn't really needed). Mostly good placements but you have to look for them. There is also one bolt above and to the left of the slot. Chain anchors.

This route was an enormously fun lead. A few runout sections kept my attention and overall the climbing was a nice balance of "moderate" and "tricky." Some of the gear I placed wasn't the best, but if you can lead 10- and higher on gear this route shouldn't be too much of a problem. If you're expecting a cruiser 5.8 you're in for a treat!

I'd say singles from your smallest cam up to a #2, with a set of nuts and plenty of runners.

This is a fun and interesting route, well worth doing! I followed a crack system right after the slot (skipping the bolt) to the Real McCoy anchors which made for a nice alternate finish.
