See you there!
Hells Gate: Flash Gordon 21, 170 feet.
Entrance Wall, right end. The climb is located a little to the right of the mini stone amphitheatre. Start at the bottom of a large vertical slab with a visible crack splitting its middle. Reach the the top of the pedestal and access the crack/corner with a bouldery move. Alex has cleaned there several decades of bird crap with a broom attached to a stick, add a grade if they have built it back. At the top of the slab, delicately head left under the block, then straight up on steep rock. Towards the end, a short (steep) detour on the right avoids a couple of meters of soft rock. 60m ropes are necessary for a solid belay at the top. Brilliant climb on great rock!

New climbs will be added like this example:
1) Hells Gate: Bloodline 22, 175 feet.
Left end of Fischer’s Cliffs almost directly opposite Fischer’s Tower. Start at a yellow wall where the cliff bulges out from a blunt rib (painted B.) Climb up ramp to a steep wall and corner crack, swing left and then back into notch. Up over roof, then up to the second roof which is taken from the left. Continue easier to the top.
