Terror is yet another classic Todd Swain route where everything works out just fine even though you expect something dreadful every move.

Just to the right of Are You Experienced is a prominent buttress with a sharp left arete. Terror climbs the arete after starting up a 5.8 hand crack to the left.

At the top of the arete, the rock turns pretty loose but the climbing is easy to the top of the buttress.


Rappel off the north side from bolts above Bolivian Freeze Job.


A light rack of cams to hand size and three good bolts, one below the arete, one on the arete and one on the easy ground above. Well protected at the crux. Best done in two pitches due to rope drag. We wrapped the rope around blocks for both belays - other wise you may have a hard time finding good anchors.
