Climb sidepulls and thin ledges to a horizontal rail about 3/4 up. From here, the crux requires a left gaston on a small crystal and some balance. Exit up and right.


From the Hall of Horrors parking lot, take the trail along the right side of the formations. You will pass the two main formations (East Wall, then West Wall). A larger section of desert separates the West Wall from King Dome. Cross this and head to the NE corner of Kingdome. There is one, very large boulder located on this corner. LHMFP is the only climb located on the SW face (other climbs are located on the NW, and NE faces).


pads and a spotter. sandy landing but with a few yucca nearby.

Is it just me or is it a little strange to name a memorial face problem for someone who's still alive?

Looks like this has been covered but just in case... News flash: Lynn Hill is still ALIVE and well. Might want to rethink the name. Just a suggestion.

This problem was established by Lynn Hill, and then dubbed "LHMFP" by her friends nearly 40 years ago! I think they knew that she was alive at that time. The term "memorial face problem" is a JT tradition. The John Bachar Memorial Face Problem was also named in the 70s, decades before he died. There are others as well.
