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

Description

This short and easy climb extends Shute-Mills, New Tradition and other climbs that share the same anchors via a second pitch to the anchor above The Chief and War Party. Above the anchor atop Shute-Mills there are two vertical cracks. Climb the right crack about 15' (5.5) and finish on a 35' low-angle slab (class 4). Rappell from the anchor down the route or a free rappel down the back side into the notch (note: you can easily set up a top-rope for The Chief and War Party from the anchor).

Location

Starts at the top of Shute-Mills (and other climbs to the left).

Protection

Big cams protect the short crack section; the slab can be protected by a small cam or two in pockets, but it is very easy. Three bolts at anchor.

I often wondered what it would be like to climb the obvious short crack above Shute-Mills, and finally led it on April 14, 2012. Presumably someone else had climbed it earlier. Apr 17, 2012

Based on feedback from a few other climbers I've bumped the rating up from 5.5 to 5.6. May 9, 2016
