About Horror Movie Wall:

This wall is the sustained 20 degree(?) overhanging cliff forming one side of the Pitfiend Pit, the fissure between this wall and Dungeons & Dragons Wall. Most routes a sustained. Route difficulty varies from 5.9 to 5.12. Dig the seas of holds and the long ten-clip 5.10d traverse traveling through most of the pit. Some routes are TR-only with a directional biner to keep you into the wall and minimize collisions with the opposite wall. Wear a helmet and padding to mitigate such collisions. This wall is >the bomb< during the summer because of the cool air and 24/7 shade. It's also warmer than the surroundings in the winter due to wind shelter and the mass of rock radiating earth's normal temperature.
