Getting There

Up high and beyond the Clamshell. This is a pretty good hike that takes the ambitious climber up and out to the upper meadow above and west of East Hellgate. Probably still quite undeveloped, the prolific and proficient Bill Hunt has been mostly responsible for the existing route activity in this hardman area.

Directions: There are different ways to get to the wall but a faint trail does exist. From the Clamshell/East Hellgate, the trail continues up the right side of a steep meadow and over a rocky band, putting you at the base of a bigger meadow. By now Altaworld is prominently in view up and to the left. Rather than make a beeline for the cliff, follow the trail to the right. It makes one big switchback: right along the base of the meadow and past some small pine trees, then wrapping around the pine trees back left on a diagonal up through the meadow to a point where you can cross a loose drainage. After that, you can zig zag straight up to the cliff. It is about 10-15 minutes from the car to the Clamshell, and another 10-15 from Clamshell to Altaworld. Jul 22, 2015
