  • Description 

    Start on Melting into Madness and start veering right after the third bolt. The first bolt as this line breaks to the right is only a couple feet to the right of the 4th bolt of Melting into Madness, the line continues to move up and to the right, distancing itself from the Melting into Madness bolt line. After splitting off from Melting into Madness, the route takes you up a thin face before easing up towards the top. The face is of similar difficulty when compared to Cotton Mouth but the climb isn't as sustained as Cotton Mouth.

    I tentatively put Greg M and Tyler P as the first ascent on this since they did many of the routes on the wall, including the routes immediately to the left and right of this one. I had seen the grade .10c suggested by a few other climbers, but I'm not sure on the FA's stated grade. If anyone can confirm some of this information or provide some new information on this route (such as a name) just comment or shoot me a PM and I'll adjust the information accordingly.


    To the left of Public Nuisance, start on the first three bolts of Melting into Madness and then veer right.


    About 12 bolts plus anchors

    It seems like this route hasn't gotten much traffic yet. My partner and I knocked of multiple foot holds every time we climbed it, ranging from small pebbles on the face, to thin flakes, to a softball sized chunk. I know Hellgate is chossy but I think it's been proven that, with time, some real gems can form on this rock. This hasn't been cleaned up very well yet, in relation to some of the other popular routes on this wall (Antidote, Cotton Mouth, Melting into Madness, etc..) That aside, this is a good route and will get even better with time.
