Start between Triple Exposure and Anaconda. Route is a 5.8/C3 or A2. Free climb a short section of 5.8 to bolts and pins to first belay under a roof. Move left around the roof then up to join Triple Exposure near the top. Could this route be the gardens first 5.13? This route should really be C2f. No difficult placements, just a bunch of old rivets. A good way to recall bolt history.

4 out of 5 stars First pitch free

Nathanael Hansen of Colorado Springs finally did the first FREE ascent of the Inferno!! Well, the first pitch. It's been a project since the moves were first worked out by the late Ryan Sayers in 2000-2001. They're saying .13a, we'll see if it sticks. Whether .12d or .13a, it's the hardest free pitch in Garden of the Gods. Congrats to Than Hansen!!

3 out of 5 stars Scary Time

Hand placed, nested pins with ground fall potential, crappy bolts, then a nasty old rivet ladder. All of it in Garden sandstone. I say easy A3, but I don't aid that much. You'll either crap your pants at the nested pin section or your butt will pucker so tight you can't poop for a week.
