Start on a high ledge. Go up face that forms an awkward slot with the underside of huge boulder that is up against the wall. Further up at a small roof, exit to the right onto nice face jugs, then up the nice hand crack to the top. Located on far left of west face of the East Rock in Hall of Horror proper.

Descent Options:

Step to climber's right to rap anchor atop Exorcist (100' to terra firma).

5 out of 5 stars Everybody's favorite of our trip

Several people liked this route. It has a little bit of everything: mini- squeeze/chimney start, mini roof, and awesome hand crack... only complaint: Wished it was longer!
Cleaned and rapped from Exorcist.

4 out of 5 stars Nurn's Romp

Part of a 10 route day with Zach. Great weather, no other climbers present all day at any location we climbed. Real fun and laid back 5.8 crack. Zach tossed the rope before I noticed we could easily walk to the Exorcist rap anchor which should be your next route in this area anyway, a classic 5.10 finger line. A 60m makes a perfect rap of this Exorcist. With no rope, you have to jump the void to the east or downclimb some mid 5th on the backside, climb back up the other side of the void and then walk off east.

4 out of 5 stars Nice

Some tough corners lead to great jamming.
