Start off following a weakness to the right of the prominent black streak which is North of Heaven’s first pitch. From a ring piton located about 20’ or so up the wall move into a right facing, right leaning corner. Dive in to place some gear, and decide how you want to crux. Work through the steep section above eventually joining the 1st pitch belay of North of Heaven.
When this pitch went in my father had just been in a serious car wreck, more so than usual he was very much on my mind. I am the son of a preacher man and, the song rocks too. Refer to the topo on the Hidden Heavenly page.


Start about 15 feet right of North of Heaven.


A full rack to 3”, #2 friend, shoulder slings, a ring piton, chain anchors
