Description 

Formerly a Forrest Gardner/Jay Bell aid line, Auschwitz Direct was freed as Hate Crimes in 2002 by Mark Cartwright and Todd Wells.

P1:Climb a nice offwidth that leads to hands and fingers.
P2:A short unnerving pitch through a bad section of shale to a thank God ledge.
P3:Climbing left through some nasty rotten overhanging rock to a roof. Climb through the roof to the top.

Location 

Starts about 500' right of the landslide; shares start with Battle Wagon.

Protection 

Aid gear and traditional pro. Guts.
