A little bit higher up and to the west from Tower 1 is Tower 2.
One climber who truly loved Hellgate and Tower 2, in particular, and was instrumental in it's development was Mugs Stump. Despite his impressive Alaskan accomplishments, he would frequently prefer to "hit up the Hellgate" first thing after returning to the Wasatch from other worldwide endeavors. His eyes would light up when he would talk about Hellgate....as if it was Moose's Tooth or something!
Again, a great place to beat the heat in the summer, very susceptible to rockfall, natural, from other climbers, and mountain goats lounging above. Sunny and pleasant in the summer months, but probably 20 degrees cooler than lower Little Cottonwood Canyon.
In the winter and spring months, beware of avalanches and avalanche control. Please be smart when climbing here.
A helmet is very strongly recommended.
Little Cottonwood Canyon. Park as for Main Hellgate and hike up the trail. The approach time is about 15 minutes.

A great sport route on the sunny side of tower 2 that starts on the eastern part of the flat area. Two big boulders and some pine trees give the belayer shade. Climb up a crack, putting a cool lieback in between the first and second bolts and continue up fun rock. At bolt number 8, angle towards the crack to your LEFT. Ignore the two bolts toward your right. I did this and found a dead end 20 feet below some other route's anchors. After having followed the correct crack straight up, pull o...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
