BETA PHOTO: Hellgate Cliffs
|As for all Hellgate areas|
Park your car off of the main canyon road.
Tower One is the southeast most tower of the three main towers. It is usually the first wall one encounters during the approach to Main Hellgate.
Mugs Stump and friends were the first to really start exploring this area. A high concentration of good climbing in a small area awaits the climber here. Bring gear to supplement the bolt placements as most of the Tower One climbing remains quite trad in character. You'll like it!
As for Main Hellgate. Stick to the trail. This will be the first tower low and east that one encounters. Plan on about a 15 minute approach time. Avoid trespassing on private property.

Does anyone have info on the route just right of Medussa that travels up through the steepest part of the cave?

Does anyone have the info on the two moderate routes just to the right of Hell is for Children? This section of wall now has 3 routes. The middle route was 8 bolts and felt about 5.6. I didn't try the right most route but it looked similar. They both have dark grey hangers and are much easier to spot than HIFC. Fun moderate additions to Hellgate.
