Description

Also south facing, this East Hellgate wall is packed with routes at the base of the cliff which has been landscaped to accomodate a trail and belayers. Even belay bolts have been thoughtfully installed for some of these routes. The 5.9-5.11 sport climber just loves this wall. It will keep you grinning for hours. These routes have developed the reputation for having occasionally soft or forgiving ratings, great protection, and awesome pocket pulling aesthetics....characteristics that make them very popular for the SLC crowd who just want to get out of the heat or get out of the gym and have some fun!

Also, a 70m rope is frequently necessary on some of these modern lines. The Martinez classic SWARM OF BEERS (5.10d) is actually two pitches, but can be led in one with 22 draws!
The limestone is the same as found on the rest of the Hellgate Cliffs, only Martinez has spent countless hours cleaning it to perfection. It is very popular. Still some loose rock has inevitably escaped Gregorio's attention, so please climb with caution.

As with all Hellgate areas, Always Wear Your Helmet.

Getting There

Just down canyon from the Microwave station, hike up the good zigzags to the base of Far East Hellgate. Continue west, first passing Melting Mud Wall, Goat Gully Wall, Goatland Wall, and finally arriving at the Clamshell.

The descriptions of the areas and routes in the entire East Hellgate section on this site are majorly lacking proper descriptions. I could barely use the info here to help me find my way around on the first visit up the the Goatland Wall. I really enjoyed the climbing up there. I wouldn't mind adding area and route descriptions if I had the ability to edit these route pages. Jul 11, 2013
