Access Issue: Mt. St. Helena Crags - Fire Damage from Fall 2017 Details

Description

Theodore Roosevelt starts from a two-bolt anchor above the first pitch of Mark's Moderate, but left of the Mark's Moderate anchors. The climb wanders up some slab before pulling a small bulge and then finishes on easier climbing. The anchors are about 20 feet back from the edge of the bear on a right-facing piece of rock.

Protection

5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. The anchor is a long way above the 5th bolt, but the climbing to it is ~5.4. Long sligs will also be useful if you top-rope this route. You can walk off towards the crystal pockets area (see area overview map) or rappell twice.

LOTS of LOSE ROCK UP TOP! Bring helmets and be aware of people at the base of the Bear.

Follows the left gray streak over a bulge or two. Hidden pockets on excellent rock. Watch out for some gravel at the anchor. A good route. Sep 8, 2010

From the base it looks low angle and easy, but it's steeper, more sustained and harder than it appears. I didn't think it was runout. The stud of a hangerless bolt protrudes a few feet to the left of the second bolt. The fifth bolt looks new, but it is placed beside a solid crack that could take a small cam. I carried along some cams but didn't need any. Be careful at the top--I nearly popped when a handhold broke just above the final bolt. Oct 4, 2010
