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

Description

Scramble up about 20' of class 4 to a short, slightly overhanging bulge with a vertical crack on its right side (about 10' to the right of a bolt). Climb the crack about 20', walk left about 10' and continue up easy class 5 blocks until you reach a belay bolt with nearby cracks for gear near the top of the crag. Alternatively (not recommended), from the top of the crack you can step right and build an anchor in a crack behind the base of a boulder to the right of a tree, and then exit by scrambling class 4 up and right on a pillar above the chaparral to a trail.

Location

Gain the talus ridge just above Kola. Cross west on a faint trail, walk around the corner and down a gully until you see a slabby face on the right with two bolts. Climb the obvious crack to the right of the bolts.

Protection

Gear up to 1.5".

A short trad climb with a clean, well-protected crack. I led it onsight with Peter Han on "judgement day" (May 21, 2011), when I was "left behind" along with everybody else, including self-proclaimed prophet Harold Camping. May 23, 2011
