Matthew Fienup climbs Helicopter Effect at the For...


The original route up the summit block atop Rational Expectations & Magali's Arete.

From the top of the those routes, traverse right around the corner to the north. Follow a finger and hand crack in a shallow dihedral. Where the vertical crack meets a horizontal hand crack, follow the hand crack left past a few solid jams. Turn the corner to the left and follow the arete (past one bolt) to the top.


Starts on the north side of the summit block atop Rational Expectations and Magali's Arete. This is the summit block that separates the Right Side Gully from the Central Gully. For more info, click here

Approach and descend the same as for Seven Steps.


A few pieces (#1 TCU up to 2"), one lead bolt, bolted anchor with rappel rings.
