If you can't tell from the route names Hotter than Hell, Inferno, and the like this is a very warm southern exposed cliff. On a summer day it can really live up to the route names...However in the late fall and sometimes winter you can have a pleasant day when the weather is way too cold for other crags....
A long pretty trail curves through boulders to get you to the far end of the cliff for this area...Pick the trail up just after leaving the parking lot turn right follow it for a while you will see the south buttress getting closer... You will arrive under inferno's start...Have fun...

Hotter Than Hell 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a NH : Whitehorse Ledge : ... : Atlantis Area
Low angle, face climbing at its best. A definite classic especially when linked up to Inferno (5.8) to make a full length route. Pitch 1: 5.7 this is not really part of Hotter Than Hell, but it is the normal start. On the left end of the south buttress locate a slab with 2 bolts on it. Climb the slab past the bolts to the tree ledge where the route actually starts. Or you can climb around the slab to the left then traverse back right on to the ledge. Pitch 2: 5.9 start under a couple small roofs...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
