BETA PHOTO: The crux down low


Crux is the first move, but stays sustained and sporty all the way to the top. Originally led with only bolts 2 and 3. A very classic route with great crimps, pockets and pinches, and nearly dead vertical. A very safe lead and worth the walk. There is also a v5 start out right which uses a 2 finger pocket (same bolts).

Has a habit of staying wet even up to a week after a rain, but still a safe route.


Head up the gully between the Grotto and The Underworld. Look for some camouflaged bolts on your right.


4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Chains.
A good way to rap from the top of Dante's Downfall.
