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


Climb the sustained 5.7 face just left of Left Corner and surmount the 5.7 overhang just below and right of the small Douglas Fir. Beware of loose rock. Use gear to anchor at the top or move right to the anchor bolts of Left Corner. There are several options for the start, with the hardest being a 5.8 boulder move.


Descend via rappel from the double bolt anchor on Left Corner.


Cams up to 2". There are only a couple of dubious small cam placements on the face below the overhang. If you move a few feet to the left you can set cams in the obvious crack, where the climbing is easier. The overhang is protected by a medium-sized cam (or two) in a flaring crack beneath the overhang.
