Climb the steep technical face (5.10a) right under the 4 ft roof. Pull the roof using holds on the right and the crack to a good ledge on the face above. Continue on easy climbing to the chains.


Hike up to Knightland take the second cairn on the left to Hidden Wall. Northface Massacre is on the far right end of Hidden Wall, right of The Pirate.

Great route. Continuously challenging but with excellent protection. Clipping the bolt under the roof is a little tricky. Getting into the roof is a little intimidating (at least for me). Pull the roof using a few gritty slopers and a knuckle lock in the horizontal crack. Then left to good holds. There's one loose hold on the roof's lip but it seems to be holding, as long as you just pull down.

The previously mentioned "loose hold" on the lip of the roof blew out on me tonight. 2 softball size pieces came off. The roof is now more difficult to pull. Expect harder than 5.11b now. Still very fun, wish we could've finished to the anchors.
