Hate Crimes (aka Auschwitz Direct)
|416 page views|
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.
Starts about 500' right of the landslide; shares start with Battle Wagon.
Aid gear and traditional pro. Guts.

This route was climbed free a couple of years back. The top two pitches went at 5.10.
