The start begins ten feet to the right of the Fortress and Hellfore Var. start up a left slanting dihedral to the intersection of Hellfire, cross over to a left slanting hand crack between Fortress and Hellfire(Crux). Finish same as Fortress. Some start up Hellfire and finish in the left slanting crack.


Stoppers and hand sized cams. Tops to the chains of Fortress.

I have always found this to be VERY physical for the grade. Just my opinion...seems WAY harder than extreme unction. Anyone else agree?

The start is fairly easy with great stances for gear. Getting into the hand crack is cruxy and then you just have to fight the widening crack with bad feet. I didn't place anything bigger than .75 but I ran it out on top, too tired to place gear. Really pumpy, definitely harder than Unction.
Edit: bring a #2.
