Description

Awesome movement on somewhat dirty limestone. With more traffic this would clean up and be a 5 star route, I would advise a helmet for your belayer as you will encounter loose rock on the initial 30 feet, and smaller rock on the bulk of it. One of the most aesthetic lines at Hellgate.

Location

Altaworld buttress, up the hill to the northwest of the Clamshell, look for the prominent arete with the large roof.

Protection

8 bolts to biners on chains

Brick hard for the grade given in the book (12a), definitely closer to mid 12.
Excellent climbing and many stars despite the garbage rock at the bottom. Once you clip the first bolt it's on and doesn't really let up until the last 2 bolts. Jun 17, 2015
This spectacular route was put up by Bill Hunt, the "Mayor" of Hellgate. Mid to late 90s I believe. Oct 14, 2011
