Andy on Hell.

Description 

The biggest holds you'll ever fall off of. A true Owl Tor 5.12 endurance testpiece, Hell (as it is affectionately known) consists of powerful lateral throws, lunges, matches, and cross-overs, then finishes with a highly non-trivial crux. An attentive belayer will mitigate the potential ground-fall at the end, but the prospect of smacking the slab beneath you is still a bit hair-raising.

Location 

The leftmost route at the Tor. Begins in the cave and traverses right. Finish above a slab.

Protection 

Fixed draws.
