Chris about to slab out to the anchor.


Route of All Evil lies on the south face of the Evil Pillar, about 10 to the left of Necessary Evil. This is a very fun easy moderate that climbs mostly on plates. Start just left of the lesser block in front of Evil Pillar, scrambling up to the right to a ledge between the rocks. From there, follow the bolt line up past large plates, veering slightly left after the last bolt. The crux is a delicate section at the second bolt, the one spot where one has to make a couple moves without benefit of the plates. Even so, probably easier than the listed rating. Rappel to descend.


4 bolts, bolted anchor.

Be careful of the small plate just up and right of the 2nd bolt. I used it for a hand but as I climbed past it, I noticed that it looks like it's about to break off.

Real Fun approach through a cave. The beggining of the route can be a fun chimney opportunity, with the first bolt looking mighty attractive.
