    i believe this is the one where you start just left of thailand tweak, and move left onto the face after maxing out your possibilities in the chimney feature. A few fun pocket moves to a committing crimp make for a fine sport climb on (for the area) above average rock.

    I think this is one of the best routes at the east Hellgate. Quality rock, fun moves and rests where you need one. It's too bad it's not longer.

    Easy 5.8 climbing up the corner to a few 10a face moves, followed by a two-move 10d crux. Shares anchors with Hellish Inferno. "Step into the Birds Nest" might be a more appropriate name... you'll see what I mean.
