This is a little canyon also know as Hellsgate Gultch. It was one of the first areas developed in Spearfish Canyon. The climbing is good and some of the climbs you will need a little bit of pro, and a few of the bolts are old. Most of the climbs are short and to the point and are worth climbing at least once.
To get here drive to Cheyenne Crossing towards Newcastle, Wyoming past Sunshine parking. Pull into the hellsgate picnic area that is next to a creek. Walk across the road to the cliffs about a minute away.
